blocked in china?

by Nathan Hamm on 10/10/2004 · 3 comments

Hey, anyone in China reading this? A friend in that wondrous place says that she can’t send to or receive from my email address. Would that be at all related or something else entirely?

UPDATE: Disregard, my friend is retarded. A case for this being my fault could be made, but I will accept no such responsibility. And I only mention it here because I know she’ll be back and see this. I may not let it shine through in all its glory, but I’m an awfully egotistical person. Said friend’s intelligence though makes me doubt whether or not I truly do hold all answers to all of life’s questions (we’ve already established that my father doesn’t, and just wait, he’ll mention his SAT score… As far as I know though, there is only one person in the family *ahem* who is a Phi Beta Kappa). Every opportunity to score points must be seized.
