The Intarweb 
With all this talk of Net Neutrality lately, I can't decide whom I distrust least, the government or corporations. I often stick up for businesses but that's mainly because I know more liberals than conservatives. I don't believe that the Internet is considered a utility, yet, and I fear the day that it really does become one; regardless of who's saying they are managing it by not managing it.

Anyway, even though this isn't directly related to Net Neutrality, I decided to give Tor a try on my main desktop PC. It's easy enough to install and configure but you do need to install Privoxy and Libevent for it work. I even installed the Tor button for Firefox. Since this is for a desktop PC behind a router that does NAT, I needed to sign up for a DDNS service to manage all this. Even though I checked and double checked the confg files for everything, I still don't have Tor working properly. I know it's just a simple setting somewhere that I just can't find. So, I put that on the back burner and took advantage of the DDNS service I had subscribed to and set up the FreeBSD machine so web sites can be viewed from the Web. I chronicled it here. So, it's back to the drawing board for Tor but at least I got something done I had been meaning to for year or two.
