Re: raspi tor node

so when i go to create a new blog post, i found i can enter the HTML link directly in the text to a comment thread on zerobin. of course this takes a small amount of work. on my x86 linux box, i ssh into the pi, and run the nanoblogger entry script to create a new post nb add entry at the same time,...

Re: Painfully Slow Browser

if you are doing anything not requiring graphics or video, try lynx in a terminal window. it's a text only browser. but works great for looking stuff up on wikipedia and archive.org. the keyboard interface takes a bit of time to get used to.

Re: raspi tor node

ok, so i've added zerobin, which is a pastebin. not exactly a comment system, but every comment system i tried to install, although simple to install, didn't work for one reason or another. i even tried nanoblogger-mod, which is a modified version of nanoblogger with an integrated comment system. wh...

Re: Why is nobody buying Raspberry Pi Starter Kit?

i bought the Maker: kit, which came with a case for the Pi, power supply 4G SD card, HDMI cable, A/V cables, GPIO cable, and a proto board with some components. i also bought a mouse and keyboard for it, since i wasn't planning on using it headless just yet

the onion address is basically that. i'm only releasing the onion address publicly to test the pi and it's configuration. once i've finished testing, i will have tor create a new onion address, and change the name of the blog (instead of using the tor relay's ID), and then only distribute within the...

Re: raspi tor node

i agree, the safest way to get TOR is from a trusted source. i think part of my tweaking of the pi is going to be torifying apache, instead of running apache normally and applying it as a hidden service after the non-secure port 80 is already open. i can probably close all of the ports i need to clo...

Re: apt-get 404 Not Found

before you blame the ISP, try

Code: Select all

apt-get update
then try the install again. i had the same thing happen when i was trying to install something, and the file it couldn't find was out of date.

so i installed tor-arm on the pi, and took the torrc from vidalia, and copied it over to my .tor directory (which was there from the abortive attempt at running tor as a standalone). i started tor, then started arm, and i like arm a whole lot more than vidalia. for one thing, there are no more 5 min...
