1,000th Blog Post

1,000th Blog Post

1,000 ... yes, 1,000th blog post.

Wow.

After UK Police Shutdowns, Hello TOR

My previous post explained about the UK Police's latest crackdown on torrent sites and along with that, they also shut down Immunicity (which was just a normal free censorship tool). So with Immunicity no longer working and also shitloads of proxy websites going offline every week, what's the next best option?
