FYI: flyctl is blocked in Turkey

Working from Turkey this summer and they are known to block random hosts/IP addresses. I can get to github.com without problem but something about both getting flyctl and doing the signup are blocked from Turkey. Not a concern for me because #icanuseavpn (grin) but flagging for others.
