Re: Whitedust article, Tor USB Product

No but what about that project that is compact FF and TB by itself, out of the context of Tor entirely? I don't even know if the developers of that even know Tor exists. If I could remember what it's called, I could tell you but I can't. I think they post updates on majorgeeks.com though.

Hello ADB,

Torpark  IS the self-contained usb thing with Firefox and Thunderbird,
at  least  thunderbird  should be expected within the next few months.
And  the  latest version was released less than a month ago I believe.
I'm  building  another  version very soon, if I can get some more help
from programmers. I should also have a Tor firefox plugin available in
the future as well.

Some would argue that it's just the free market doing it's

thatself-contained, 'USB-stick' Thurnderbird and Firefox? I can't
think ofthe name right now. It would probably be really easy for
Arrakis to addthis to his project. The one thing that's nice about
VPM though is thatit is cross-platform and contains a few extra
security features thatwould be hard for a non-geek to configure. The
reason I say this isbecause there are many dedicated freedom
activists in the US and aroundthe world that are just dying
(sometimes literally) for something likethis, but don't have the
technical know-how to self-implement.

Arrakis, do you need help with TorPark? If so, I'd be willing to chipin, at least to a degree.
