Yes, I2P has a number of clients specifically made for it. Also, since the traffic stays inside the network, there's not the same issue as with Tor (that bittorrent basically ruins the outproxies). That upside is also a downside, since it means you can't torrent traffic from regular sites, you have to stick to internal I2P torrents.

Verizon CTO Says 4G Service Is On Track 74

Posted by ScuttleMonkey
from the too-many-g's dept.
Verizon has announced that it is on track to roll out their new 4G LTE service using the 700 MHz band that it acquired in the recent FCC auction. Targeted first towards USB air cards for laptop customers, the service will be extended to cell phones and other mobile devices with embedded LTE eventually. Testing in Boston and Seattle should conclude in the next couple of months and commercial deployments should follow soon thereafter. "Lynch said getting voice to work over LTE has been particularly challenging. But that challenge is getting resolved as Verizon and other members of the GSMA announced Monday they are supporting a standard that uses IMS technology to deliver voice services over LTE. Still, more work needs to be done. Until a solution is complete, Verizon will use its CDMA network to provide voice services. And the LTE network will be used for data. Eventually, when voice over LTE becomes a reality, Verizon will use that technology. Verizon will also have to integrate EV-DO into its LTE offering to ensure that customers can switch to the 3G EV-DO network when the 4G LTE network is not available. Even though Verizon is being aggressive in building its network, it won't happen overnight."

+ - Anonymous network I2P 0.7.10 released->

Submitted by Mathiasdm
Mathiasdm (803983) writes "The Invisible Internet Project (I2P) attempts to create an anonymous communication network. I2P creates an additional layer in the network stack, providing anonymity using encryption and passing messages along through several other computers. On top of the network, regular services such as mail, browsing, file sharing and chatting are supported.
Version 0.7.10 was released today. It will increase the scalability of the network, which has seen a 5-fold traffic growth in the past year, even further. The release also addresses a possible security issue."

For one, the weight a CMS adds is compensated by all of the code that is already present, all of the plugins that can be added without any trouble, the possibility for non-coders to easily modify website content ...
Especially for large websites, this can dramatically improve how fast you can update and improve your site.
Also, if you don't want to use a CMS, a framework like Django or Ruby on Rails is the way to go. These allow you to program everything yourself, but already have a lot of functionality built-in, to avoid reinventing the wheel.

Main Toilet On ISS Craps Out 219

Posted by kdawson
from the series-of-tubes dept.
The Narrative Fallacy writes "NASA has spent years getting ready for a crowd in space — adding additional sleeping quarters, learning how to recycle liquid waste into drinking water, and installing a second bathroom last year. But now the main toilet has broken down on the International Space Station while a record 13 astronauts are on board. For now Mission Control has advised the astronauts to hang an 'out of service' sign on the toilet as it may take days to repair. In the meantime, Endeavour's seven astronauts will be restricted to the shuttle bathroom. Last year a Russian cosmonaut complained that he was no longer allowed to use the US toilet because of billing and cost issues. Now the six space ISS residents will have to get in line to use the back-up toilet in the Russian part of the station. The pump separator on the malfunctioning toilet has apparently flooded, and ESA astronaut Frank De Winne is the guy tasked with putting his plumbing skills to work on short notice. 'We don't yet know the extent of the problem,' says flight director Brian Smith, adding that the toilet troubles were 'not going to be an issue' for now."

Compared to 0.7, the new version offers significantly improved network performance, faster startup and reduced memory usage when uploading or downloading large files, enhancements to the user interface, and a new Windows installer. A new search function is also available, though it's still fairly limited. Downloads are available for Linux, OSX, and Windows.
