+ - Circumvention of torrent blocking proxies->

Submitted by
An anonymous reader writes "It seems to get more mainstream for some ISPs and campus networks to block the downloading of torrent files, in order to try to prevent the illegal data traffic. This should no longer be a problem, as txtor (http://txtor.dwerg.net) offers you the possibility of downloading the torrent file for you and providing you with a text version of it. That is, modified extension and mime type. Seems to fool most transparent (and normal) filtering proxies."
