This month I resolved 218 tickets on the Tor Help Desk.
I talked about Tor and Tails at a Cryptoparty sponsored by EPIC.
I met some cool people at the Rally Against Mass Surveillance in
I compiled some web resources for the wiki covering various aspects of
I submitted small additions to the website (#9909, #10044).
I made weekly contributions to Tor Weekly News.
I contributed to the new Tor Stack Exchange page.
I submitted a final report on Sponsor F year 3 item 17.
Despite some helpful conversations with Yawning, I was unable to
positively identify the source of a DNS leak in Mumble in time for the
Sponsor F year 3 deadline. I plan on continuing to pursue this. I
investigated alternative methods of using Mumble on Windows. When using
Torcap, I found that Mumble byapssed Torcap's proxy settings, and so
did not provide a solution for this issue. When using Tortilla, I found
that Tortilla introduced so much latency into the system that circuits
were failing all the time. Even though Tortilla is good at proxy
obedience, I found it to be unreliable for data delivery and not well
suited for VoIP.
