Accessing SDN From Thailand

    I just returned to the US after spending the summer in Thailand and was not able to access SDN during my time abroad. I sent several messages to the moderators of this board but never received any response.

    Has anyone else had this problem or know why this restriction exists? And to the moderators why did my emails go unanswered.

    On a side note I shadowed a dentist in Thailand and wanted to share that experience when it happened, but wasn't able to.

      SDN is accessible internationally (hence the international forums) and we have members from around the globe. I'm not aware of any restriction against service in Thailand. However, Thailand's government is actively involved in filtering internet content that enters their country and routinely blocks ISP's it suspects of providing pornography, gambling, and other vices and material it deems as troublesome. It could very well be that SDN has been caught in such an internet sweep for what ever reason or you could have had problems with your internet service provider or a number of other issues. While I can't speak for Gavin or Lee I never received any emails from you concerning this matter and can assure you that any inability to access our site was not intentional nor directed at you. I do hope that you continue to use SDN and post some of your experiences abroad.
