Portugal, that one country you probably only know about because of the economic crisis. That's pretty much it. Oh well.

Switzerland (banks, chocolate and mountains), but currently living in China, digging my tunnels through The Big Firewall to access DuckDuckGo and pretty much everything else there is on the web.

Off the topic,are all exit nodes on tor blocked by default in CN?
posted by TV 3 years and 9 months ago Link
schluchc
I actually don't know. I tried using Tor only once and couldn't get it working, but also didn't try too long. Using ssh tunnels and VPN is easier, faster (I assume) and so as long as they let me connect to my proxy it's fine. Unfortunately, often I get precisely 2kbit/s, my guess is that some providers massively slow down encrypted connections.

You're a trooper!! And it's so cool that you're from Switzerland, it looks like such a beautiful country from looking at pictures. Being the chocolate fiend that I am, I don't know if I want to take the risk to visit Switzerland and never arrive back :)

I have been there and it snowed a little. You need to go to Giordanos. They have some tasty deep dish pizza. :)

Where have you been??? Snow in Buenos Aires?? That doesn't happen much...Indeed, I think snowed in 2007, and the time before that was in 1918!!!

But if you go to the south of the country, it's normal to snow

From the USA, too. The land of "Freedom", which, sooner or later, will not be so free. Tons of dumb and unnecessary laws here.

USA as well. NY to be more specific.

Education will certainly help. I'm looking forward to spreading the gospel of DuckDuckGo. I heard people describe Chrome as a 'botnet' and used to giggle. Then I saw an infographic that was a little more sobering

I'm loving this thread; it's intriguing to hear what people's perceptions of their countries are (not to mention observe the spread of users).
"Japan---blue skies and earthquakes"
"Portugal---economic crisis" etc etc.

How did you all stumble onto this site?
