Well, not that well, it's mainly a scripted exploitation of the index
we've built for a year (yeah, ikiwiki rox) and we have still some
issues with the tagging system due to translation into english (Baba
Amr, for instance, can be written with a dozen different ortograph it
seems), so we need to find a way to fix that, and it would not be easy.

And it would worth nothing without the people who actually took the
footages and posted them to different upload website (mainly youtube
and bambuser) at great risks.

Okhin - also: we have a tor hidden service http://7rv7cfdyyg3kmmnx.onion
and SSL will come soon
