Viettel vs. Facebook: fifteen love

For those who don't understand the title: "fifteen love" means "15-0" in tennis score. When a player scores 1 ball, he/she will get fifteen points (second ball = another fifteen but from third ball, each ball equals to ten). Simply speaking, Viettel has just won 1 ball against Facebook. I'm wondering if they (Viettel people) will win this game or not... They definitely can!

Anyway, Viettel has blocked all Facebook servers. All requests will fail. A simple SYN will fail. All means everything! And obviously, Viettel Internet users won't be able to access Facebook in a direct manner. This sucks! REALLY SUCKS!

I did ping some Facebook servers and they all went timed out. *sigh*

The whole situation is being controlled by a fifteen kid who loves to piss everybody off, I guess. *sigh*

PS: To people who wants to access Facebook, you may need to find a proxy software now (do a Google search for "UltraSurf" or "Freegate"). There are several other ways to work around, just do a quick search. Good luck
