Check RSS/ATOM reader IP address
08 Apr 2013
Since I got the news that Google Reader was closing I have moved to RSSOwl for my RSS/ATOM feed needs.
It feels really good to reclaim my data from google, but one feature I am missing is the anonymization that the google crawler provided. To reclaim some of this I am running the RSS reader over Tor (I am getting possible DNS leakage warnings from Vidalia. Have not had time to verify this yet though).
To verify that the Tor Proxy is used I created a small ATOM feeds which tells you what IP address you are accessing it from.
