First Day of Instant Messenger Freedom
9-7-10: Initial release.
I thought it would be interesting to just write about what it feels like to be liberated from the wrath of technology, more so from the instant messenger programs.
Now I am not going to write about this every single day, but maybe at the end of the week I may write up a reflection post and how things went when a small distraction of my life suddenly “disappeared”.

Sometimes You Just Got To Get Away From It All
For those of you who have added me as a friend on your Instant Messenger program or Skype, you may have realized that for the last two weeks I have been quite busy. Maybe you have left me a message via instant messenger, and you saw that I didn’t answer you, or if I did, it was a very late reply.
Quickly getting to the point, it is very obvious that women deserve the same rights as men for many reasons. One of them being equality. The second would definitely come to be jobs. The last would be everyday lifestyles.
Equality is one of America’s biggest gifts to it’s residents, but also one of it’s biggest flaws. This meaning that there is still racism happening every day, and also a lot of sexism. Let’s face it, we are equal on paper, but in reality, far from it. Man has always been flawed, and it will continue to be flawed. Women deserve the same rights as men because honestly, women have more reasons to be successful than men.
Today is the greatest day of the summer for V1. As I described on Monday, living with my roommate for the past 3 months was almost hell. Today he left for home for good and I couldn’t be any happier.
Above is a picture of “Mike” who is sleeping on the ground as he is sick of sleeping on my couch. As part of good will, I had let him borrow my extra pillow these last two weeks.
Now here is the funniest part of this whole summer ordeal. Mike has started his internship without the employer knowing that he got kicked out of school this last semester. Within the last weekor two, Mike got in touch with school and filed a petition letter, stating that the reason for his poor grades last semester was due to “threats from his roommate” who had written on the back of an envelope “Die Mike” in Chinese.
During that semester, Mike was afraid and he couldn’t focus. Plus, he was able to get from his doctor a notice stating that he had ADD. With this evidence, and beyond my own personal belief, we just learnt yesterday that the school is giving him a chance to come back this fall.
I had suffered this whole summer because Mike had believed he was not going to get back into school until next year some time, and now he is the happiest guy I know. Well, actually I’m happier now that I don’t have to listen to his troubles anymore.
As a lasting farewell, I’m putting up this picture of him so that the rest of the world can feel my pain living with Mike.
[Edit 6/28/08] UltraSurf – World’s Best Proxy Surfing Technology
[EDIT: 1/30/08 – We at The Underground strive to get you the best programs, information, etc. It has come to my attention that Ultra Surf is not working as well as it should. Anti-virus programs have now named it a Trojan and will not let you install it with the anti-virus on. Because this file is marked potentially dangerous, you are downloading it at your own risk. If you have already downloaded it, you may remove it if you wish. There hasn’t been any large complaints about it but for the security of your info, you may want to scan your computer, delete the ultra surf file (if necessary), and find an alternative proxy program (or wait for us to do the searching for you!).]
Addition: 3/7/08 – Download link for a newer version of Ultra Surf has been added
Addition: 6/6/08 – Removed Rapidshare links to not violate WordPress ToS.
Addition: 6/28/08- Added Direct Download Link From UltraReach/Wujie (UltraSurf’s Company)
So at one point we had a post telling you all a bunch of proxies that would let you access blocked sites at school, libraries, etc. Well we found that, actually, the blocking programs got a step ahead and even blocked those site so you couldn’t even get to the proxy page in the first place. Well guess what, here at The Underground we like being the one with the step ahead so I did a little searching for you all… and found this- UltraSurf!
Why does this work instead of the proxy web site?
- Because the web blocking programs block the sites but they can’t block a proxy program running on the computer itself.
- That’s right, this is a program, not a website.
- UltraSurf is the back door you are looking for!
Here is some info on UltraSurf:
“So what exactly it is??
It is the flagship software product from UltraReach Internet Corp. for Internet anti-censorship. It enables users inside countries with heavy Internet censorship to visit any public web sites in the world safely and freely. it enables users to browse any website freely just the same as using the regular IE browser while it automatically searches the highest speed proxy servers in the background.
What does it means??
- 100% freedom to have 100% information in most secure way.
- It means no matter where you are you can access 100% freeversion of internet I mean no firewalls no restriction nothing….
- Almost all schools, universities and corporate offices raise firewalls to filter out not work related sites, now those firewalls will be of no use or they have to change their plans.
- Everybody can access various social networks like Orkut, Youtube, Myspace, Hi5, Facebook, Linkedin etc. which are blocked almost in 99% schools and offices.
- 100% real time and it’s encryption is better then any online banking system.
How to get going??
It’s very simple you have to just-
- download an exe file [Download Below]
- then extract it
- and run
- Set proxy if u have any (generally in offices internet are provided through proxies, you can find that, through tools>>internet options>>Connections>>LAN Settings>> there you are with proxy server for your LAN and it’s port
- Just copy that to proxy settings of Ultrasurf.
- Then a window will pop up, says some thing in Chinese, just close this window
- And open fresh internet explorer
- There you are, you can surf any information.
- For office people: beware don’t spread words to your colleagues keep this info as limited as you can, coz if system people got to know about it then they’ll take your comp for scrutinizing.
What is the Flip Side??
I should start with a quote that I’ve learnt in my life
“Too much freedom can Make you or it can Break you”
The flip side is that you can access to anything, I think you got my point, In school, universities and Work office various sites are blocked to raise their efficiency and productivity, and it is very much likely that if anyone get freedom he/she will definitely try to miss use it.
So do you want this program now, or should I just give it to you later? Lol, like I guessed, you want to Now. Well fine I guess I can give you a couple of download links…
- Rapidshare: [download removed]
- NEW – VERSION 8: [download removed]
- Geocities: on request
- Other: on second request (shouldn’t need this but just in case)
- Direct Download Link From UltraReach/Wujie: DOWNLOAD
Please Use Rapidshare if you can because I’m gathering points for your downloads. THANK YOU!
OK so once downloaded, unzip it (if at school, put it on your student folder so it will go with you from computer to computer, just hide it a little) and run the program. It will open up a web browser and another small program window. You will also see a Lock in the bottom right corner of the screen (I don’t know how to get it off but it doesn’t really bother me). Minimize the small program window and surf away on the web browser!
Enjoy your surfing freedom! Use it wisely and try and keep it a secrete because the schools, libraries, etc. will eventually find out if enough people are using it. This thing would spread like good gossip!!!
