  2. hate for restrictions

    May 26, 2008 by Oğuz Yarımtepe

    I am sure many people are surprised when they see the legal alert when they tried to open the youtube

    Access to this web site is banned by “TELEKOMÜNİKASYON İLETİŞİM BAŞKANLIĞI” according to the order of: Ankara 1. Sulh Ceza Mahkemesi, 05/05/2008 of 2008/402.

    I was expecting that i will be opened, soon but seems it wont. Thats why i installed Tor and Privoxy and breaking the stupid restriction. Here are the steps to install and configure Tor.For the ones that are usingKubuntu Hardy, they may use the deb packages of Tor. Check this site. For the <DISTRIBUTION> par, i wrote hardy and it worked fine. Instead of Torbutton plugin i installed FoxyProxy and configured it for using Privoxy. After enabling the FoxyProxt to use the tor proxy, i was able to get the youtube site. The connection was a little slow, thats all.


  3. firefox 3.0b5

    I have been using Hardy Heron for a while. Indeed there is not much difference between the previous version for me, but i am planning to write a review about my experince about it, later.

    I was looking at the irongeek site and watching the video there related with webgoat project. I decided to check the Firebug at Firefox. If you are using Firefox 3.0b5 like me and want to use Firebug addon here are some links for you that you may use the 1.1 beta version of it.

    I encounter some other solutions too.
