Blogger Up in the KSA

Blogger isn't blocked any longer in Saudi Arabia, according to Farooha. If you check the comment forum to that post you'll also find advice on how bypass the government's proxies. I blogged the black-out of Blogger and Flickr last night and here are the facts from Reporters Without Borders (who hasn't said anything yet about any lifting of the block). Google blog search results here.

Update: OceanCreep confirms that Blogger isn't blocked any longer. For this Bloggers first hand experience of the block, read this. According to the most recent post, these sites are still blocked:

Flickr.com
Megaupload.com
Livejournal.com

Update2: Saudi Blogs are also reporting that Blogger can now be accessed again. (via Alaa).
