Updated i2pfox profile (now csb1)

Posted on June 5th, 2009 in censored, firefox, i2p, info, information, p2p, windows | No Comments »

Decided to update the i2pfox profile since the official site seems dead (as of last check). i2pfox has too much potential to just let die.

This version is basically TEST3 but updated.

Share files anonymously via I2P - Torrents, Gnutella, eepsites and more

Posted on April 22nd, 2009 in advice, censored, firefox, info, information, irc, learn, news, p2p | No Comments »

For those who may not know about a program called I2P, it is a mixed-license free and open source project building an anonymous network (or, more accurately, a pseudonymous overlay network). The network is a simple layer that applications can use to anonymously and securely send messages to each other. Possible uses include anonymous surfing, chatting, blogging and file transfers. (according to Wikipedia).

On I2P you can share files via I2P torrent trackers, through an I2P only gnutella network (i2phex), eepsites (I2P only websites) and even through IRC and an I2P Messenger. All while remaining anonymous.

To find out more, check out the I2P website.

After you first install I2P, install the i2pfox profile (Windows i2pfox Package here Linux i2pfox Package here for those not yet on I2P) then open it up after I2P is running and go to
http://localhost:7657/susidns/subscriptions.jsp and enter the following urls one per line and without duplicates:

then click the save button then the reload button on the page (not the browsers reload button)

After all that’s done, check out the following eepsites in i2pfox setup and read and learn
* http://portal.i2p - A English portal page that has a lot of information about I2P
* http://forum.i2p - An I2P forum (which is also available without I2P here)
* http://ugha.i2p - An I2P Wiki
* http://yacysearch.i2p - An I2P Search engine

Also feel free to pop into the IRC chat, lots of people around.

** This is a someone old post.. it still should work but no promises. **

For those who don’t know, I use Firefox for all my browsing needs. It works on Windows and it works on Linux. My friend says he has a lot of issues with Firefox on Vista but I can’t figure out why.

Anyway, I decided to make a custom distributable profile for Firefox that should work fully on Windows and mostly on Linux (a couple of addons are Windows only). I aim this at Portable Firefox users but regular Firefox users can also use it.

To install: For Portable Firefox just copy the profile folder into the FireFoxPortable\Data folder and your are done (ensure there is no current profile folder in the data folder).

For Installed Firefox on Windows, go to
\Documents and Settings\YOURUSERNAME\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles
and in there should be a folder with a lot of seemingly random characters. Go into that folder and remove all the content of that folder (backup first!) then copy the contents of the custom profile folder into that folder.

For Linux, I can’t recall right off where the profile is located exactly but it should be somewhere around
or something. When I’m on Linux next I will update this part. Most Linux users can figure out how to install this custom profile.

NOTES: This profile has been tested on Windows XP with Firefox 3.0.6 on DSL Broadband. Please let me know how it goes on other systems/setups.

This profile includes:
* Tweaked network settings aimed for broadband (more broadband users than dialup users)
* Adblock Plus: Blocks ads
* CLEO: Read the bookmarked page included with the profile
* ColorZilla: Lets you find the color code on any webpage
* Download Statusbar: Nice download bar, better than the default Firefox downloader
* FEBE: Let’s you backup your entire profile and easily restore it should you need to
* Flashblock: Blocks flash elements but allows you to show them as needed
* Forecast Bar Enhanced: Enhanced weather bar
* Greasemonkey: Allows you to install scripts that can change websites to how you like
* Greasefire: Lets you find Greasemonkey scripts for sites you are currently visiting
* Yousable Tube Fix: A Greasemonkey script that enhances YouTube
* IE Tab: Lets you load pages with the IE rendering engine within Firefox (for those stubborn IE only pages)
* OPIE: Read the bookmarked page included with the custom profile
* Speed Dial: A grid of clickable thumbnails you can use to quickly visit your favorite sites
* Stumbleupon Toolbar: Lets you use Stumbleupon from within Firefox
* Tiny menu with custom toolbars: Frees up a lot of screen space
