Announcement and News
=====================

TWN Moves to Mondays
- --------------------

Sorry for failing to post a TWN last week.  Unfortunately both of
my children were sick with a stomach bug and they take priority.  They
are much doing fine now, but loved Saturdays with Dad.  As such,
Saturdays are now theirs and TWN has been moved to Mondays.  I apologize
for any inconvenience this may cause.

LAFS-RPG on Tor Hidden Service
- ------------------------------

Markus Reichelt |markus| provided a fantastic concept of running
lafs-rpg on a `Tor`_ hidden service.  While the grid itself is not on
the Tor network, users may access the grid through the hidden service
helping to provide the users anonymity for the grid owners.  At my
request Markus was kind enough to provide a `HOWTO`_ with sample
configuration files.  Please note, there appears to be an issue when
access the service via `tor2web`_.  Markus was also kind enough to
provide a `live PoC`_.  Please note, you will need to use the Tor
network to access this PoC.

Glowing Quotes
==============

“Absolutely, I've been very impressed with Tahoe-LAFS, both the
underlying concepts and ideas and the implementation (I was playing with
it just yesterday). It's fast, reliable, and has been making steady
progress.” — Mourad De Clerck


Tahoe-LAFS on Twitter
=====================

I still want to organize a Tahoe-LAFS Unit Test Writing Party. Somebody
give me a little encouragement here! http://identi.ca/url/70271963
[`0`_]

@sameerverma @koolhead17 I'd like to see a Juju charm to manage
Tahoe-LAFS instances. Seems pretty simple.. [`1`_]

Exception in tahoe deep-check
- -----------------------------

Brad Rupp experienced `an exception when running tahoe deep-check`_.
The exception occurred with Tahoe-LAFS 1.9.1.  Brian |brian| suggested
the issues might be similar to `#1676`_ and `#1689`_.  If this is
correct, the developers resolved the issue in trunk two months ago and
it will be part of the upcoming 1.9.2 release.

Resurrecting MojoNation
- -----------------------

Jack Byer expressed interest in `resurrecting Mojo Nation`_.
`MojoNation`_ was the creation of Evil Geniuses for a Better Tomorrow.
Their ranks included Bram Cohen of BitTorrent fame and our very own
Zooko |zooko|.  MojoNation provided the ability for users to set prices
for any service which their node might offer and for clients to bid on
services they desired.  Inspired by `a discussion on BitcoinTalk`_
discussing a currency-based filesharing network, Jack wishes to discuss
whether it would be practical to reintroduce the idea of market-based
computing resource allocation.
