Peek-A-Booty – The First Screenshots
Don't leave a bear behind
CodeCon Judging from our mail, we know quite a few of you were tuned into the unveiling of the Peek-A-Booty app on Sunday via the DNA Lounge webcast.
But you probably won't have got too much detail from the transmission, so as promised, we can bring you the first screenshots of the censor-busting P2P proxy.
Like the SETI application, Booty provides the most entertainment when in screensaver mode. It's actually a background process, so it doesn't need to wait for your PC to be idle before doing useful stuff: that's just when it's at its most informative to you.
Here's the screensaver showing Peek-A-Booty operational but not connected to any other Booty nodes.
Now you can see the user connected to three different machines: a "normal" peer, who's not behind a firewall; a user behind a NAT translation mangler, and a node which is behind a censor firewall. He's the duct-taped bear.
The Booty beta uses a web based configuration screen which you can see by clicking here. In the final versions, this will be replaced by an OS-native GUI configuration screen.
The idea is to make Peek-A-Booty "granny friendly", so the large contingent of gay bikers and fluffy sex fans that the Booty bear will attract will surely be a bonus. (Just kidding). Credit for the Booty bear goes to Joey deVilla, who describes himself as a "recovering cartoonist" and who with Paul Baranowski wrote the application.
To recap, the app needs both funding and coders, so apply via the official website®
