If it's of any consolation, then your lab-equipment site would not be 
the only one blocked by the government in mainland China, or by ISPs in 
fear of government action -- the symptom is widespread, and there's 
apparently significant awareness among the public there of the bans and 
ways to avoid them.

Wikipedia has a good overview and selection of links with bypass 
information... search term "china firewall" pulls it up. (I get the 
sense, though, that these resources must be used by the surfer, rather 
than the provider.)
