Hi Robin,

When I use Tor Browser to go to:

I see the error:

Message d'erreur

	• Notice : Trying to get property of non-object dans DialMarcxmlObject->__construct() (ligne 16 dans /usr/share/php/dial/dial-pr.php).
	• Notice : Trying to get property of non-object dans DialMarcxmlObject->__construct() (ligne 17 dans /usr/share/php/dial/dial-pr.php).
	• Exception : This object must contain a MARCXML datastream. dans DialMarcxmlObject->validate() (ligne 29 dans /usr/share/php/dial/dial-pr.php).
Le site Web a rencontré une erreur inattendue. Veuillez essayer de nouveau plus tard.

Which is a glorious mix of French and English that even I can understand.

Any idea when it will be fixed?

I would like to thanks all the dev that have shared feedback with me about my thesis plan. This work may not be perfect, but could start/influence the research in the future hopefully. Here is the abstract and the access link:
> Tor is the most popular anonymous communication system nowadays, that set up a excellent compromise between anonymity and performance. However, Tor is by design vulnerable to end-to-end correlation attacks. Many techniques have been and are being developed in order to mitigate these attacks. This master thesis objective is to define the utility of a new relay, and to give a measure of its contribution to the diversity of the network. This is achieved with a modified version of the TorPS , which simulate the Tor network against both relay and network adversaries. More diversity means less end-to-end correlation attacks possible by the latter. At the end, we would like the volunteers to be aware of the utility they bring to the Tor network security with a certain relay configuration.

I added to this message my master thesis plan, as well as a poster that presents a summary of the key elements.
