I dunno whats this all of a sudden, but.

1. dunno what you have against my signature, btw, if you got a better idea or 
a better formulation for it, im open for it.

after all im not the only one with such a signature here or on any other 
mailinglist, so why this all of a sudden reaction on it? arent you guys a bit 
late with that?

2. i am not the web designer, but i forwarded that information to our 
webdesigner, thank you for the input:)

Please don't take this as a Flame take this as constructive criticism

I was just surfing a bit around and came across this interresting
sounding
project.

http://entropy.stop1984.com/

here is a short description of what it is from their page:

"ENTROPY stands for Emerging Network To Reduce Orwellian Potency Yield
and as
such describes the main goal of the project.

    * ENTROPY is developed as a response to increasing censorship and
surveillance in the internet. The program connects your computer to a
network
of machines which all run this software. The ENTROPY network is running
parallel to the WWW and also other internet services like FTP, email,
ICQ.
etc.
    * For the user the ENTROPY network looks like a collection of WWW
pages.
The difference to the WWW however is that there are no accesses to
central
servers. And this is why there is no site operator who could log who
downloaded what and when. Every computer taking part in the ENTROPY
network
(every node) is at the same time server, router for other nodes,
caching
proxy and client for the user: that is You.
    * After you gained some experience with the ENTROPY network, there
are
command line tools for you to insert whole directory trees into the
network
as a ENTROPY site. So ENTROPY does for you what a webspace provider
does for
you in the WWW - but without the storage and bandwidth costs and
without any
regulation or policy as to what kind of content you are allowed to
publish.
Everyone can contribute his own ENTROPY site for everybody else to
browse
through. The contents is stored in a distributed manner across all
available
and reachable nodes and no one can find out about who put up what
contents
into the network [1]. Even if your node is not actively running, your
contents can be retrieved by others -- without knowing that it was
actually
you who published the files. Of course this is only true if you do not
publish your name (or leave your name or other personal data in the
files you
publish)

Have fun,
Juergen "

so i thought i might share the url with you peoples.

If you have any suggestions for the project, contact em, and not me, i
am not
a developer there)
