In addition, Sponge develops a bittorrent client called <a href="http://bob.i2p/Robert.html">Robert</a> written in Python. There is also a port of <a href="http://www.emule-project.net/" target="_blank">eMule</a> to I2P called <a href="http://echelon.i2p/imule">iMule</a> [Needs developers!], an anonymous, secure implementation of a <a href="https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/wiki/Gnutella" target="_blank">Gnutella network</a>, accessible using <a href="http://echelon.i2p/i2phex/" target="_blank">I2Phex</a> [maintained by Complication, seeking new developers!], and additional facilities including browser-based file hosting etc.</li>
    3232      <li class="tidylist"><b>Anonymous Chat</b><br>Start your IRC client (e.g. Chatzilla, Pidgin, XChat)
    33         and connect to the <a href="irc://127.0.0.1:6668/i2p">server</a> at <code>127.0.0.1 port 6668</code>. You do not need to configure a proxy in your IRC client; I2P provides you with a local IRC tunnel (configured in your IRC client as an IRC server or remote host). Your local I2P IRC tunnel on <code>localhost:6668</code> will direct you to one of two IRC servers hosted on I2P by Postman and Badger, but neither you nor they know where the other is, and your mom, ISP or government is unable to intercept your conversation! Once you're there, <code>#i2p-help</code>,<code>#i2p</code>,<code>#i2p-chat</code> and <code>#i2p-dev</code> are just a few of the available channels you may wish to /join. There's also an I2P-based <a href="http://echelon.i2p/qti2pmessenger">Instant Messenger</a> for unmonitorable and uncensorable anonymous chat, as well as alternative IRC servers, Jabber servers, website-based chat etc. And of course you're entirely free to run your own servers over I2P in whatever flavor you choose (both udp and tcp are provisioned in I2P).</li>
    34       <li class="tidylist"><b>Forums &amp; Blogging</b><br><a href="http://syndie.i2p2.de/" target="_blank">Syndie</a> is a distributed forum and blogging platform for I2P [Needs developers!]. There's also an I2P plugin port of the Java-based <a href="http://pebble.sourceforge.net/" target="_blank">pebble</a> blogging platform ported to I2P by zzz, available on <a href="http://i2plugins.i2p" target="_blank">i2plugins.i2p</a>. And, of course, all normal blogging, forum and cms software will run over I2P, though you're advised to take extra precautions with security when setting up and to keep all associated software (e.g. Php, MySql, Python, Apache) up to date and locked-down! Also, there are quite a few forums running on I2P in various languages; see <a href="#eepsites">below</a> for some suggestions.</li>
