HTTP Proxies: AKA School Firewall Evaders

As a fun little side project, and because I work with proxies a lot in my current job at Verodin, I decided to build an HTTP proxy. I fiddled with several language choices, but eventually landed on Node.js as it’s event-driven default nature lends itself well to networking applications. I also wanted to take advantage of cool language features like closures, which only exist in languages like Javascript and Common Lisp for reasons unbeknownst to me.
