The Pirates came up with a nice, simple project to bypass the restrictions imposed by several countries (like Italy, but now also UK) in accessing The Pirate Bay.
The project is called The Hydra Bay, and – as the name suggests – it aims to create such a huge constellation of continously-blooming proxies that it will be quite hard to block them all.
There are two ways to set up the proxy, one is using nginx (badass), the other one is uploading a PHP script that needs just a little tune-up (easiest one, i.e. my choice).
My two cents are here: http://mc2dn.name/thehydrabay/. Use it freely, hoping that they won’t shutdown the whole website. :)
