Default Having some trouble accessing YORF

In order to search for the various things I need to do for this hobby, I have to use a VPN to access Google, and Facebook. Sure there's the Chinese version of Bing... but my skills at reading Chinese are still pretty limited, especially when it comes to technical materials. The English language version of Bing (accessed from China) is a less than satisfactory option.

Since moving to China, I've been able to use my VPN, and access YORF (as well as plans.rocketshoppe), until recently.

What's changed? Why can't I pull this site up when logged into a VPN?

Launching is Optional... Landing? That Depends on Trees.

Maybe China has figured out your VPN and is blocking your super secret rocketry projects.

Could be an IP you're using is banned. I get a crapload of spammers trying to register from CN. When that happens I block the IP range they're accessing from. Other than you I have no "real" users from CN. Do you get an error when you try to access? If so, what does it say?
