China Closed Web for Maintenance

It seems that the Chinese government just switched off the Internet last week when it became concerned that some people might remember the importance of the date. The matter is that it was the 24th anniversary of the massacre of protesters in Beijing's Tiananmen Square.

The authorities have come to a decision that the best way to commemorate the massacre is by declaring it “Internet maintenance day”. As a result, everyone had to spend the day updating their servers being unconnected to the worldwide web. In order to help the loyal network managers, the Chinese authorities simply switched off the web so that they weren’t bothered by too much traffic.

Of course, they couldn’t shut off the entire Internet, so a number of websites were told to commemorate Internet maintenance day while others had to update their servers in the normal manner. The websites under maintenance included blogs and portals which could want to remember 4 June for reasons other than being a patch Tuesday. In the meanwhile, the Twitter-like Sina Weibo was working, as well as the Chinese operations for MSN and Yahoo. The most interesting fact is that for some reason the dictionary website WordKu.com only offered one page showing a definition for the word "encore". Media reports say that a picture which edited the iconic image of a man standing in front of a column of tanks by replacing them with rubber ducks was censored as well.

Faceless42001 avatarHopefully poeple will sustain news stories of both the anniversary and the BS disconnection so that the Chinese will see them when they get back online and we can somehow try to help the people of China.

crazymichael avatarIf Britain closed the web i'd probably be the only person still alive when it's back on because everybody else in Britain would of committed suicide because they couldn't get on facebook or play there games online.
