Re: [tor-talk] Giving Hidden Services some love



That was my fault, must've deleted a character by mistake.  https://github.com/chris-barry/darkweb-everywhere is the right link

I missed the "performed in conjunction
with the organisation", looks like we were saying the same thing.

I'm wondering if a few from the community should take part in a nagging effort? I'd gladly throw some time of mine into helping get more hidden services. Any takers?
