*TPB LOSS*

*We were down a few hours earlier today. There's no need to worry, we
haven't been raided this time. We're only upgrading stuff since we're still
growing.*

*One of the technical things we always optimize is where to put our front
machines. They are the ones that re-direct your traffic to a secret
location. We have now decided to try to build something extraordinary.*

*With the development of GPS controlled drones, far-reaching cheap radio
equipment and tiny new computers like the Raspberry
Pi<http://www.raspberrypi.org/>,
we're going to experiment with sending out some small drones that will
float some kilometers up in the air. This way our machines will have to be
shut down with aeroplanes in order to shut down the system. A real act of
war.*

*We're just starting so we haven't figured everything out yet. But we can't
limit ourselves to hosting things just on land anymore. These Low Orbit
Server Stations (LOSS) are just the first attempt. With modern radio
transmitters we can get over 100Mbps per node up to 50km away. For the
proxy system we're building, that's more than enough.*

*But when time comes we will host in all parts of the galaxy, being true to
our slogan of being the galaxy's most resilient system. And all of the
parts we'll use to build **that system on will be downloadable.*
