Speaking of critical timings and "demonstrations", anyone in the 
community have contacts/ideas for "last mile" connections in Teheran? 
The protesters are getting blocked right and left trying to get 'net 
access.

There are some, ehrm, "boxen" out on the 'net to allow them to get 
around the active blocking going on, but most of the citizen reporters 
are unable to even get a conection to allow proxying out. Some serious 
censoring of 'net access going on.

Just curious - replies off list if desired. Thanks in advance.
