First WordPress plugin

I released my first WordPress plugin today. I have have been trawling through custom code I have coded over years, and found some that are ideal to turn into plugins.

Anonymous web server


If you had a mind to use an anonymous web server, then I2P is worth a look. And offer a lot more besides, covering – anonymous web browsing, web hosting, chat, file sharing, e-mail, blogging and content syndication, newsgroups, as well as several other applications under development.

  • Web browsing: using any existing browser that supports using a proxy.
  • Chat: IRC, Jabber, I2P-Messenger.
  • File sharing: I2PSnark, Robert, iMule, I2Phex, PyBit, I2P-bt and others.
  • E-mail: susimail and I2P-Bote.
  • Blog: using e.g. the pebble plugin or the distributed blogging software Syndie.
  • Distributed Data Store: Save your data redundantly in the Tahoe-LAFS cloud over I2P.
  • Newsgroups: using any newsgroup reader that supports using a proxy.
