Submission + - Circumvention of torrent blocking proxies (dwerg.net)

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.

Map of the Internet 186

Wellington Grey writes "Author of the popular webcomic xkcd has put up a hand made map of the internet as today's comic. He also has an interesting blog entry detailing some of the work that went into it, such a pinging servers and creating a method of fractal mapping to display related regions as contiguous sections on the grid." The drawing is pretty damn impressive; somebody get on making that thing a giant wall poster so I can paper over Taco's office door.
