status.owenthe.dev will no longer work in China

As the title says, my status page will no longer be accessible in China.

I took a quick visit to my AWS billing console to see a surprise charge of one cent. One whole cent! I thought to myself what in tarnation is causing this one cent charge?

Turns out, my status page has been receiving a lot of hits from China over the past few days…the AWS bill is showing 0.046 GB of data transferred to the Japan region (which includes China):

Of course there’s something very suspicious about the hits just ramping up from China. While I’m not a fan of censoring my content to specific countries, in the interest of keeping server bills down I’ve decided to go ahead and do this. I may lift the restriction after a while.
