Regarding the recent geoblocking of this site by the TGA, there is no need to go to the lengths of installing a VPN service to access this site. Of course, we should be using VPN as a matter of course in this surveillance state, but that is another matter.

Just find a simple proxy site and you can view the site and the buyers club from there.

You can also log in and post even if the proxy site does not support SSL encryption, because if you haven't noticed, this site is not secure. That is, if you look at the address bar when you are logged in, there is no padlock symbol and all of our writing is free to anyone who cares to snoop (not that this should be a concern as no-one is doing anything illegal here, but you should be aware of it.)

In any case, if you do use a proxy, I'd suggest using a more established one as, should you decide to log in while on a proxy, your passwords and name could potentially be easily harvested, especially by any of the thousands of more dodgy portals.

Here is a link to an old, stable such proxy. Who knows, perhaps they collect logins too:

Thank you to Gilead, Michael Sofia, and the terrific folk at FixHepC for making this adventure possible.

For anyone who is worried about password snooping, it is possible to connect to FixHepC using SSH encryption:

fixhepc.com/ (probably not visible to the eye, but the link actually goes to https:// fixhep.com ... without the space of course)

This means the encryption/decryption takes place between your PC/laptop and the FixHepC server, before reaching a third party proxy or VPN server.

Diagnosed Jan 2015: GT3, A0+F0/F1. Fatigue + Brain-Fog.

Ever grateful to Dr James.

Relapsed somewhere after all that... Bummer!

Thanks for pointing that out. I had assumed that these days, most sites were automatically set to https.
