Leaping over the Great Firewall

This is my plug for Witopia for anyone who travels a lot and in particular, travels to China. I bought the personalVPN - SSL since it's supposed to be faster than the other one. Basically running the VPN, I find the internet is faster and more enjoyable experience since I can now do things like watch YouTube which is, of course, a critical part of my anyone's productivity. The one downside is that I find that torrents are way slower (tv shows) - but now I can download the torrent file using the VPN (ironically, ThePirateBay is blocked), and then run my downloads with the VPN turned off.

PS for anyone who does decide to get it, you can get a 10% discount entering in the "shxpt" coupon code which worked for me.
