Do you guys (in Bahrain) have a problem connecting normally to Flickr? I can connect no problem through a proxy but straight through just takes ages. Have they (or are they) blocking or at least proxying/throttling that in Bahrain (hence the slowdown) I wonder?
I’m not raising alarms, but just want your feedback, maybe it’s something wrong with my setup for some reason.
The ping test is okay,
— flickr.com ping statistics —
13 packets transmitted, 13 packets received, 0% packet loss
round-trip min/avg/max/stddev = 239.654/243.084/253.132/3.216 ms
I called the inet help desk and they say that everything is functioning okay and that flickr is not blocked.
Can you guys check and let me know?
