Re: feedback reqest: jitsi, and Ostel.co

Skype started out as a decentralized and encrypted service that was designed to protect the user from warrantless mass surveillance. When ...

Re: The CryptoStorm Speed Test Thread

I noticed the web site and forum overhaul... so the home page now says: "The OpenVPN service provider for the truly paranoid". Well sure, anyone who is not paranoid is not paying attention ... but does this mean that plans to support wireguard have been abandoned? If not, can you give us some hint a...

Strange 'lifetime' VPN offers

In various places around the web, I often see these unlimited VPN service offers in the $40 to $80 range. Soon after they expire, new and similar offers take their place. I am not promoting them, I just want to know what the angle is. How can they do this, it sounds incredible... there must be a cat...

some good progress is being made on the widget here but i see a major issue on some 32 bit platforms: client.exe hangs at splash screen with high CPU load (the initial window with the controls does not appear) then it constantly retries some I/O read operation - looks like it might involve a call to...

Several suggestions to improve this service

SUBSCRIPTIONS The price for a 1 year subscription is given as 52 U.S. dollars but many U.S. retail stores only sell prepaid debit cards in $50 or $100 amounts. This means that U.S. customers must purchase a $100 card to get 1 year of service and then go around trying to spend the balance of $48 som...
