Things that work well with Tor

pa href=https://torproject.orgTor/a is a proxy server which allows its users to
hide their IP address from the websites they connect to. In order to provide
this level of anonymity however, it introduces latency into these
connections, an unfortunate performance-privacy trade-off which means that
few users choose to do all of their browsing through Tor./p

pHere are a few things that I have found work quite well through Tor.

pIt allows me to focus on my presentation and not stress out about running
into configuration problems or exposing private information.

Simple command-line ntp client for Android and FirefoxOS

Auteur:

Today I did a quick port of Larry Doolittle’s ntpclient program to Android and FirefoxOS. Basically this lets you easily synchronize your device’s time to that of a central server. Yes, there’s lots and lots of Android “applications” which let you do this, but I wanted to be able to do this from the command line because that’s how I roll.
