Three Essays: OpenAI Proxy Rules, E5 Developers, and Others

One#

Surge 5 for MacOS has finally been updated, and I updated to the latest version as soon as possible today.

I took a quick look at how to use the newly added Surge Ponte in the knowledge base, and it's not difficult. I plan to set it up after I go home next month, so I won't tinker with it in the hotel these days.

Since I have been using JMS and occasionally encounter situations where ChatGPT cannot be used, I have purchased a three-month TAG to try if it works well. The price is really expensive, but I accepted it because I found a domestic wide node.

While updating Surge, I also reorganized the rules and added five proxy rules for OpenAI, which are:

- DOMAIN-SUFFUX,openai.com
- DOMAIN-SUFFUX,bing.com
- DOMAIN-SUFFUX,openaiapi-site.azureedge.net
- DOMAIN-SUFFUX,identrust.com
- DOMAIN-SUFFUX,auth0.com

If you find that Notion is loading too slowly, you can also configure the rules:

- DOMAIN-SUFFIX,notion-static.com
- DOMAIN-SUFFIX,notion.com
- DOMAIN-SUFFIX,notion.new
- DOMAIN-SUFFIX,notion.site
- DOMAIN-SUFFIX,notion.so

Last year, I applied for Microsoft's E5 developer subscription and renewed it by running scripts on GitHub.

Today, I saw a notification in a WeChat group:

Microsoft 365 E5 developer subscriptions are being terminated in large numbers today. Microsoft has set the subscription expiration date to April 5th or 6th, which means it will expire immediately. It's quite mysterious who got affected this time, as both those who ran the renewal script and those who didn't were affected. So, only Microsoft knows the exact reason behind this.

Several friends in the group have been terminated, which scared me and made me check if mine is still active. Fortunately, mine is still normal for now.

If I lose E5, I will really need to pay Microsoft. I still can't live without the Office suite. Although Apple's iWork suite and Shimo Documents can be used, they are still inferior to Office. Moreover, there are many people in China who use pirated Office. For example, when I write a document in Pages and export it as a docx file to send, the recipient either can't open it or the formatting is incorrect and garbled. It's really not worth the effort.

I saw someone analyzing on Twitter that it is because of the current state of diplomatic relations that some American technology companies have to impose various restrictions. I'm not sure if this is the case, but it has indeed caused me a lot of trouble.

Just like the internet tools I just mentioned, JMS used to work fine, and there was no need to worry about having multiple backups. Now, not only do I need to have multiple backups, but I also need to find ones with native IPs.

Another example is overseas payments and receiving verification codes. Mainland-issued cards cannot be used for payment, and mainland mobile phone numbers cannot be used. There is no choice but to find other ways to solve these issues.

There are problems within our country, and the changes in the international environment have also played a role in exacerbating the situation.

Therefore, I suggest that while it is still convenient to buy foreign physical SIM cards, you should get one. It won't cost much each month. If you have the opportunity to go to other countries, open a local bank account, not a saving account, but a checking account, deposit some money in it, and then apply for a credit card.

Speaking from the perspective of human nature, having a foreign physical phone number and a bank account already surpasses 99% of people, so you can make money using this.
