Anonymouse, a major China censorship work-around, bites the dust?

As of right now in a Beijing bar and restaurant, Anonymouse.org is inaccessible. It returns the "connection reset" message that is a hallmark of most Chinese internet controls.

Anonymouse is one of the most commonly used tools among my friends for accessing websites blocked in China. Its limitations, including inability to load complex web pages, i.e. those using javascript or streaming video, led me to seek out other options, but Anonymouse has been an important tool for many.

One alternative, proxy4china.com, does a better job dealing with complex pages, and is working again after a period of error pages and other problems.

Can anyone confirm or deny a blocked Anonymouse?
