What happens if your central coordinator - the one assigning circuits - is compromised?

circuits so the viewers can't get a whole view of the network.

i don't know which version of tor is on torpark but i know the alpha
version, the current and the previous to current ones would sometimes
take several minutes building the circuits... this might be where the
problem comes from perhaps? i wonder how long it will take for the
chinese government to figure out that there is now yet another way to
bypass their great firewall.

Yes,  it  works.  I've  read  the  websites  that  are  suggesting the
downloads.  For  most  it  works,  for  some,  when they first open it
firefox  times  out  so they assume it isn't working. However, it then
appears  to  work  just  fine.  I  should have this timeout fixed next

I'm seeing plenty of Torpark chinese downloads. Do we know that these do
actually work?

using torpark [1] i was able to google for "shanwei" which the
IHT says i should not be able to do [2] and download pictures [3].

1.  well... after a few mins, the tor connection died. now can't
connect to any site with tor. so i can't find the torpark url. but
ssh still works.
2. IHT.com, asia section,  "China's tight lid on village
shootings", pg 7. from nytimes. sorry, can't connect now to find
url, have paper in front of me. "until tuesday, web users who
[searched  on google for] Shanwei, the city with jurisdiction over
the village where the demonstration was put down, would find a
handful of pages.... after a few screens of information unrelated to
the incident, the browsers of users who persisted froze..."
