Newsriver caching articles to Freenet

on Apr 17, 2017 ·

The newsriver.bit site now caches some of the articles on Freenet. This allows reading the articles anonymously. You will need to have Freenet installed and running on the default port of 8888 for this to work. Look for the (freenet) indicator in the titles.

I'm not caching them in ZeroNet yet due to their size. I'll work on caching the last few days only in ZeroNet as a workaround at some point.

on Apr 12, 2017 ·

I've updated tvepisodes.bit to use ettv releases. Inserts into Freenet continue and are discussed in the Freenet 'tvepisodes' FMS forum.

TV Episode updates resumed using EZTV

on Jul 24, 2016 ·

With kat.ag going down the updates stopped on tvepisodes.bit. I've switched to using eztv.ag to obtain the source of new torrents and resumed updates.

In the future I plan to add more sources and investigate getting new torrents directly from the bittorrent DHT.

Monero Donations

on Apr 19, 2016

I've added a Monero donation address to TV Magnet Links and River of News. The address is 45XA7Ji6h7Pai157hJEKSgPpgKr8TJ9YPbbt8e8nXV9FBnzND3GwZGUL66cSMaGhDicJRCbCN68QQ6MmKrtjpacMQMzU2X1.

Monero is a cryptocurrency designed to be more anonymous than bitcoin. It does not allow tracing the origins of transactions.

Freenet TV Episode insert progress

on Mar 26, 2016

The insertion of TV Episode files into Freenet is working but is slow. The site shows whether a particular file is being inserted or the freenet key if the insert completes. I've successfully downloaded from freenet using the keys.

Currently only SD definition files are being inserted. 720p, 1080p and above are being ignored. Once I have insertion stable and faster I'll look at adding the better quality files.

The contents of the torrent are stored as a zip file. Freenet allows storing directories of files and I'll investigate how to get this working. This might enable playing the files directly from Freenet. It would also allow selecting individual files if all you want is a .srt rather than getting the entire results.

TV Episode Freenet Links Available

on Mar 24, 2016

I've added a feature to the TV Episodes site to make it safer to anonymously download the files instead of using bittorrent where your IP address can be discovered.

I'm using Freenet to store the files and there is a new "Freenet Key" column in the table of episodes. If the upload to Freenet has completed for that file then the key to download will appear there. Entering that key in Freenet will start the download.

Freenet is an anonymous decentralized network for storage of files and information. Their website is https://freenetproject.org.

I thought about using IPFS for this but that has the issue of not being anonymous. Publishing the files there will reveal the IP address for users seeding the data and those retrieving it. If this changes I'll reconsider.

Want a .bit name? Need namecoins?

on Mar 03, 2016 ·

I made this offer on the ZeroTalk forums recently when people asked how to get namecoins to register their .bit name for their sites.

If you have namecoin installed and can ZeroMail me a namecoin address I'll send you a small amount of coins to get started. It'll be enough to register a name and update it a few times.

I can also register the name for you if you don't have namecoin installed and transfer it to you when do install it - but that requires a significant amount of trust in me that I won't run off with your name so I don't recommend it.

I'll keep this going until demand gets too high for my small amount of namecoins to last. Luckily registering requires a very small amount.

I registered tvepisodes.bit, newsriver.bit and cannonf.bit for my sites.

TV Episodes Magnet Mirror

on Mar 02, 2016

A while back I created a site to show the last week of TV magnet links from Kickass Torrents. I stopped updating it late last year but with the recent attention around ZeroNet decided to resume it.

It's quite basic but I find it useful. ZeroNet has gained a lot of features since I played with it and I'm looking at how the site can be expanded to use them.
