    The sign up page is giving me a "page not found" error. Maybe too many people signing up, overloading the system? :p

    Same here: I can get to the home page but the signup page isn't happening.

    Yeah, I have seen reports around the Web that they are having launch troubles. Hopefully things are smoothed out soon.

    Sounds like it will be pretty cool, if they can keep porn off of it.

    Yes, and some other areas of the Internets end elsewhere.

    • 25 out of 41 countries surveyed showed evidence of filtering;
    • Iran, China, and Saudi Arabia not only filter a wide range of topics, but also block a large amount of content related to those topics;
    • South Korea’s filtering efforts are very narrow in scope, but heavily censor one topic, North Korea;
    • Countries engaged in substantial politically-motivated filtering include: Burma, China, Iran, Syria, Tunisia, and Vietnam;
    • Saudi Arabia, Iran, Tunisia, and Yemen engage in substantial social content filtering;
    • Burma, China, Iran, Pakistan and South Korea have the most encompassing national security filtering, targeting the websites related to border disputes, separatists, and extremists;

    hello ...

    would be great to find such online services that's for international ....

    i did find one who charged me 30US$ behind my back, for i didn't cancel a trial period & yet i didn't use the service for wasn't as good. I tried the pause & let buffer trick several times but still the video was jerky.

    I can use Youtube, but i would really appreciate to have some other VOD services that has a player that allows buffering like on GT/Youtube & such.

    well like you said, the net stops at NA & others well they just doesn't exist!

    I see the login is working today. You have the option of using another account to login, so I tried that and before I login my other account comes up with a warning stating that it can't verify the site and I shouldn't really trust it but if I wan to continue I can. I guess this is all part of growning pains.
