Taib's billion dollar bride from Lebanon?

Of the 3 web sites which were closed down yesterday 2 are revived and 1 still inaccessible today:

Radio Free Sarawak can now be open-thus their explosive reports on Sarawak Chief Minister’s `billion Dollar bride’ is now open for all to read and download. Since the wedding and the bride has been kept such a secret Sarawak Report exposed that there are some people in high places who had to inquire from the web site to find out what really happen at the wedding eg even the name and age of the `imported’ bride still remain top secret! But the report from the ground was definitely a coup as there has not been any report about the wedding from such closed up quarter in any main stream or side-stream media. The main stream media prefer to give the function the low profile treatment as though on cue from Taib himself. The web site has not provided any clarifications on what happened to it thus far.

The Sarawak Report web site has re-emerged in a new appearance-but still inaccessible. The attack continues. Earlier in the morning the web site was revived for some time where readers can read and leave comments. However later attempt to open the web site meet up with the `new look’ where logging in is not possible. But the new look seems to suggest a hacking job on the web site instead of a DOS attack as happened previously.

For the whole day these popular web sites cannot be accessed:

http://www.sarawakreport.org

http://www.radiofreesarawak.org

http://www.malaysiakini.com/cn/

The `empire’ is striking back with their cyber troopers. Watch out-more may be targeted.There are those who can’t debate arguments with better arguments -so they resort to denying you a voice. It is harder to hit a target outside the boundary of these despotic forces-but they can still try some dirty tricks eg using robots to repeatedly open a web sites till all others are denied the access. This is a denial of service attack. Another means is to hack into the web site -which may have happened to the Malaysiakini Chinese section where a make-believe warning has replaced the web site’s content. But there are ways to counter them…

Update: Malaysiakini Chinese Section’s problem has been fixed according to the Editor-just wait for Google to do the neccesary updating.

At 1 month old-but inspiring excitement! Keep going!

CONGRAT! The problem of poor reception in Sarawak need urgent attention, however.

The new frequencies are as follow:
* 1st Transmission:
0630-0730 local time on 7590 kHz(same as before)
* 2nd Transmission:
1800-1900 local time on 15420 kHz(slightly moved)

The reason for the change is: the old frequencies could be beyond reception in Sarawak causing many reception reports from Sarawak itself returning report of no signal/reception. Hope fully the new frequency in the evening will help get to the range of radio reception there. Reception reports are essential to verify if the reception situation has improved. Other development for the RFS:

Protests have been going on continually against the take over of ancestral land of the Terawan, Tering and Penans around Mulu National Park which is a World Heritage area-but ignored by oil palm plantation giant KTS Pusaka.

While the scandal around the Mulu National Park is brewing there is another scandal happening just outside its doorstep: At Long Terawan and a few villages around it -the oil palm company KTS Pusaka has taken over 800 000 hectares of NCR lands by securing the village chief’s consent, but notably ignoring the majority of the villagers and other ethnic groups like the Penans. The agreement between the company and the Terawan chief has been kept away from the villagers. See the video here.

Radio Free Sarawak has kicked up a veritable storm among the netizens so far-whether they are from Sarawak or not. Along with the glare come the close scrutiny on this new media kid on the bloc, as well as bold suggestions to improve it. Among these `bold’ suggestions are:
1. Longer hours of transmission per day; doubling of the daily transmission hours seems to be on the card; The desire for longer hours of transmission is a welcoming sign of people asserting their right for information-from all sides and of greater depth;
2. 3-5min of news reading at the beginning; Look like we may get more than what we asked for-may be a veteran broadcaster may offer her service! The advance of technology allow people from different parts of the world to chip in; they just need to do a part of the broadcast and forward the sound file to where the radio transmit world wide;

Loud transmission-but loud noise pick-up too!

The reception of Radio Free Sarawak is tested in Kuching this evening-and the sound was loud and clear-but background interference can be overwhelming at times. Same quality of reception is also observed about BBC transmission at a frequency next to 15mhz, as used by RFS. The morning transmission will be checked tomorrow.
