Re: reporter from The Economist in Thailand seeks help

if the person only wants surfing the web, torpark is the best thing. It can be found here: http://www.torrify.com/download.php

Something to the stuff I read here: Its great that you write howtos for newbies with nice pictures and so on. But if you write a howto, keep in mind what peaple want to do. They dont wanna set up a server. They wanna _use_ Tor. So a good idea is to make simple and straight howtos that only show how to install Tor (or Torpark) and set up the Browser. The rest is only confusing 95% of the users.
I know the problem: If I write things like this, I always feel like an idiot. But I learned to igonre this to get better relults ;)

Enigma, thaks for your work. its a nice howto!

Hello, I am The Economist's South-East Asia correspondent, based in Bangkok, and my colleague Ben Sutherland said you might be able to arrange for me to get some information on how to use TOR's network to work around the considerable amount of internet censorship in this part of the world. I don't expect that Thailand's new, military government is going to ease up on blocking sites, so I suspect my need for proxy servers is likely to increase!

I am reasonably proficient in IT matters, so perhaps all I need is an e-mail explaining how to set up my PC (which runs Windows XP) to use the network. Then if I have any problems, maybe I could e- mail for advice. Many thanks, in anticipation, for your help, and I look forward to hearing from you,
