Ooooooh, that is interesting. Added to the stego wiki page. > Indeed, 24x7 active connections can be suspicious, so I hope you will > counter this problem so that I don't bother setting up filter.

Well, opennet has high enough churn that this isn't a problem. Darknet on the other hand is a problem: you have a fixed and probably small set of peers, Freenet needs to run 24x7 for good performance, sacrificing even more uptime/connectivity is not really viable at the moment. However in future it may be, we have some features planned that may help with this (e.g. long-term requests). > > PS: fuck bosses, I run freenet node myself=)
