Today I have noticed a vast upsurge in hits to this blog. At first I put this down to Dr Crippen in his erratically-regular round up of the British medical blogosphere, BritMeds, which cited a recent post of mine on ubiquitous UK pharmacy Boots in Sunday's edition.
However, I am disillusioned.
Although Dr Crippen's citation generated a fair number of hits, he has been upstaged by overseas snooker fans who want to watch the World Snooker Championship at the Sheffield Crucible Theatre on the BBC.
A useful update to my original post on how to fool the BBC iPlayer was posted in the comments – Firefox now has a brilliant little add-on that controls your Tor connection and overrides the need to have Privoxy running. Even more impressive is its filtering capability in that you can specify which urls go through the Tor network and which don't.
Does the BBC domestic license payer finance this piece of software bullshit ? Of course.
