Egypt censorship circumvention questions and rumour tracking


I've heard VPNs and Tor are being more successfully blocked by the Egyptian government. Anyone following this? A friend of mine reports that a number of OpenVPN services he's scyling through are becoming blocked and Tor isn't working well either. Anyone have any recent knowledge of what's getting through there?

(ubiquitous "asking for a friend" note)

BTW: Would be great to have region-oriented categories in this forum for these kinds of things.
