VPN Update in Asia

26 Jan


So, reports have been out recently that the VPNs in Asia aren’t working as well as normal.  The reports are definitely true.  Actually the internet in general isn’t working that strongly right now, but that could just be my specific place.  O_o

But in general, Astrill has been causing a lot of problems recently, as have ExpressVPN and VyprVPN.  Astrill is completely uncommunicative on Apple products, which is a bite to a lot of people here at my institution.  I’m not so sure about the others working on Apple, but I know that a lot of PCs and Androids are also having problems.  So far, Astrill is working just fine on my PC, but not all the time on my Samsung DuoS phone and not at all on my IPad.

Astrill says it is attempting to update an app for use in Asia, but we’ll see how it goes. To be honest, I don’t know a lot of VPNS that work well on IOS systems at any time.

Travelling Fails

Oops!!  Traveling epic fail.  This poor woman not only went 800+ miles past her destination, she ended up in the wrong country!  Lesson: Don’t put too much trust in your electronics.  Garmin or GPS systems are not thinking beings.  They only compute information that you put into them, and sometimes those computations come out wrong.  The driver must still be aware of where they are going and how they are getting there.  So, stay aware on the road!  Lest you end up in Maine when you meant to be in Mexico City. . .
