Announcements and News

Delayed TWN

My apologies for the delay in getting this out to our readers. At the last
minute, I needed to drive my kids to their schools. This caused my
schedule to slip, resulting in the delay. Thank you for being

I2P and Tahoe

This Monday, I had the pleasure of speaking with `str4d`_ of `I2P`_. I2P
runs one of the largest, if not the largest Tahoe-LAFS grids in the world.
They deploy mulitple introducers (2) to prevent the grid from dying in the
event of an introducer outage (i.e. the Destination key being lost). This
is the first grid of which I am aware that uses the multiple introducer
approach in production.

They even maintain `fantastic documentation`_ on using Tahoe-LAFS on I2P. A
special thanks goes to `KillYourTV`_ for this documentation. In addition to
written documents, I2P and its users provide `tahoe-repair-all`_,
`print-good-shares`_, and `grid-updates`_. If you are interested in
helping I2P in regards to their Tahoe-LAFS grid, please look into tickets
`#517`_ and `#1010`_. If you are interested in I2P, and why wouldn't you
be; please find out more about them on their `blog`_.

Personally, I would like to extend my thanks to str4d, KillYourTV,
`The_Tin_Hat`_, `YrB1rd`_, and the rest of the I2P community for taking
the time to speak with me. I really enjoyed talking with all of you and
look forward to working with you in the future.
