Apparently some visitors from Singapore are having problems seeing the pictures posted here. This might be due to censorship by their ISP. Things like that happen and happened before in some other countries like Iran and China as well.

If you think your internet provider is censoring milkboys or parts of it or if you’re living in a country where visiting sites which are legal in most parts of the world might get you in trouble there are two things you can do to avoid annoyances and trouble.

Bypassing Censorship
Most countries are censoring websites by redirecting your browser to another IP when you type in a certain domain. You can bypass this by using another DNS provider like OpenDNS. The only requirement to do this is that you have direct access to your router. Don’t worry if all this sounds complicated to you, the whole process will take just 2 minutes and is explained in detail here.

Staying Anonymous
Usually it’s easy for your internet provider and local authorities to track every step you make online; which websites you visit, who you’re mailing with, what you’re downloading and so on. You can prevent them from doing so easily by using an encrypted tunnel for your internet connection. You just have to sign up with a VPN provider (VPN means Virtual Private Network). They will assign you a new IP and route all your web traffic through their servers.

If you choose a VPN provider that doesn’t store any log files not even them will know what you’re doing online. This means neither your internet provider, nor your local authorities, nor the VPN provider nor the owners of the sites you visit nor the people you share files with in peer-to-peer networks will be able to identify or track you.

One of the few VPN providers not storing log files is Anonine. Their service costs about €4 per month, works with Windows, Linux, MacOS, iOS & Android and is easy to set-up and use.
