What happened to the colours? Too 'edgy'?

Re: The CryptoStorm Speed Test Thread

@df Yeah, I glossed over everything but the speed comparison there didn't I. Thanks for clarifying the privacy implications, and I agree there isn't any privacy if they chose for there not to be - the power is all with them. I do find those $5 instances fun to play with though, when I just want to t...

Re: The CryptoStorm Speed Test Thread

Question: Is a cheap vps set up using https://github.com/StreisandEffect/streisand faster than Cryptostorm? To make it a bit unfair, I'm connecting directly from my laptop and not the router. Comparison is to my last post in this thread. $ ./speedtest-cli Retrieving speedtest.net configuration... Te...

Re: [Exits] England Node Not Passing Any Traffic

Well, my man, if my experience (once I got the fucker to work) is any encouragement to go through the hassle - on the same device it's feeling nice in terms of usage. As I showed on the speedtest thread, it's not lost any performance. Infact - but this might be my imagination - it feels slightly sna...

Re: [Exits] England Node Not Passing Any Traffic

Ah, yeah, I misunderstood. Get ya now. All I know is the lack of being able to connect to the England node (a goto for me) promted my upgrading to ecc. The config in my router that had worked for years became a pain in the arse. What you say rings true from my experience, but as we're the only two b...

As we're on different OS's, I'll have to leave it to your interpretation, and I may be off; consider this brain storming, nothing as solid as direction. I was in th...

Ah, should have said if you've not updated in a while this might not work. It requires a certain level of OpenVPN/OpenSSL.

Re: HOW-TO: Tomato router setup

Here's how I've managed to get it to work with the new ECC connection. I'm sure there'll be tweaks and improvements (shout out if you know of any, dear reader), but it works and is stable on my router. The rest of this thread is bollocks now, and as I have time off work I'll set things strait. You'l...

Re: Speeds

@parityboy

That's the router :) (laptop connected via ethernet). Over-clocked as mentioned, and running Tomato (Kille72 fork).

It's been running over clocked for a few years now without issue. When the kids are here it's continuously pushed as hard as it will go and is steady as a rock.
