Blogspot not blocked in Beijing?

For the past month or so blogspot weblogs have been blocked, unblocked and blocked again thanks to our friends running the Great Firewall. Nothing new there, and not worth blogging about anymore. The only reason I write about it here, is because a friend of mine in Beijing (with two blogspot blogs) said that she had not noticed any changes. She can still view her blog without a problem. Now I am just wondering whether the block is only in Shanghai, which is hard to believe. Or is she somehow on a different network with direct access to the world outside China?
