Hi Niels,

Yes I was aware of torque, its a little primative, I was thinking more along the lines of a complete url structure, as for the WWW, as I described in a previous ortalk post.

I previously described it as:

Url: h[idden]w[eb].[servicetype.]xxxxxxsitenamexxxx[.xxxxx[.xxxx[.etc]].[country/region[.subregion[.]].][org/com/co/gmb/ltd/plc/net/etc[.sub]]



That way anyone can be (even if you are not using tor and are only on the internet) levered into the Tor network, by the hw. prefix, via a local gateway, seamlessly. This would be great if it gave the user the opportunity to install tor client (and remember if chosen not) and then we might have more tor servers (of the right type!!) eventually.

At the moment the only gateways I know of into Tor from the internet are payforuse gateways (metropipe). I dont know if there are any others??

[Thats Ok Sir, I do understand, I (probably) rather you did that as well.]
