I taught in Saudi Arabia during the last year. There's a mandatory Google safe search there. For the first few months I taught English before teaching IT. When students would ask what certain words meant, I'd show them pictures on Google images. Occasionally, the word wouldn't show. These were non-porn words. I wish I could remember what some of those words were because I'd like to check to see if they're also blocked in the US. What a fucked up thing, Google.

posting to kill a mistaken mod.
Sorry, I posted that while doing five other things. On my site, I have 17 out of 600 questions from the MMPI test (Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory). That test is owned by NCS Pearson, Inc. They had (have?) their attorneys send out DMCAs. There was an article on slashdot about the same attorney going after someone else for posting 75 questions. http://yro.slashdot.org/story/09/03/23/2324258/dealing-with-a-copyright-takedown-request
I filed a counter-notification because 17 questions is fair use. Two months later I got a 2nd DMCA about the same thing, from the same attorney. I sent Pair my 2nd Chilling Effect notice disputing the same DMCA. Pair said if they get sued, that they'll sue me for damages.
I wasn't sure if Pair paid attention to my first counter-notification. I asked about it a couple times. That took a week or two to get answered since I think they had to consult their attorney. They said I should've just played along and removed the 17 questions and that they'd disable my entire site if they got a 3rd complaint about those questions. They also said I should feel free to move to another provider.
All in all, a long way of saying, that I don't think Pair is big enough to handle the VPN for the Navy ship. Although maybe they've grown in the last few years.
Thanks for your advice. It's mostly about Pair saying they didn't care about my DMCA dismissal* and telling me if it happened again, they'd yank my site.
The email thing is just a reminder to leave. My contract ends in August and I'll move along.
* Done through Chilling Effects then I had a lawyer look it over. I donated money to EFF.
I was letting gmail handle my account from Pair. The spam ratio got big enough that Google complained to Pair and Pair cut me off from sending all my email to Google. I went a month without cleaning it out seeing how many spam messages I'd get. 10,000 appears to be the limit for Google.
I've also had a problem by objecting to a false DMCA complaint. Pair said I was the only one who objected rather than just remove the wrongly perceived complaint. They told me if there's another complaint that they will close my account.
I've had a Pair acct for over 10 years on an abandoned site that I overpay for. I think I'll be moving along when my contract ends this year.
Have you been to an ER in the US? I've waited 8 hours before. When I was in Australia and ran out of anti-seizure medication (held up in Customs) getting some more was wonderful. The confusing part was how to bill me since I'm American.
I think mandatory coverage (health care, vehicle coverage) should have a gub'mint provided way of doing it..

That's because people like me won't comment.
You should buy something small on that card and pay it off because they might cancel it since you don't use it. Small like a book or magazine or bottle of beer. I lost my oldest credit card for never using it.

Using google as a mostly blind search doesn't equal the advice you'd get from
I'm using IAPS (intl-alliance.com). It works ok. Facebook knows it's a proxy and sometimes won't refresh when other things do. $105/year. I'm not sure if it's worth it, but it's the choice I made. Saudi laws are very strict but it was stopping me from Rolling Stone magazine (reading Matt Taibbi's blog/columns) that got me off my ass.
When I was in Australia, I remember watching drunk parrots chase cats. Most cats back down when something walks at them. What a bunch of pussies. Ouch, that hurt to type.
If so, there'd be a remake of "Citizen Kane" built around Murdoch's life.
