With the DDoS attacks on the torproject.org website over the mid to end of December, I decided it would be prudent to join the relatively small list of mirrors.

Exiting relays

Both SpunkWeasel (865A408E2B1EA3E18C9A12E80A8D458F9C985C16) and AnorexicSquirrel (B8E6FFEB6F91FA3D26BC572836FB0ABBD142DC87) have been given additional horsepower in terms of CPU and memory and both have been allowed to exit. Additionally, both are now capable of IPv6 connectivity as guards, relays and exits.

New relays

A new exit relay has been put online called VivaciousAlpaca (24B1783665A9B0A4BF640A1CD02F685C0CA098ED). It has the same CPU and memory as SpunkWeasel and AnorexicSquirrel and also has full IPv6 capabilities.

A full list of my public Tor relays can be found on the tor page.

Anonymous nodes

I’ve run some Tor nodes for quite a while now, two Exits and five relays to be precise. They are all listed as being part of the same family and have never had any reference to me being their operator.

Sadly, these seven nodes will always remain a secret due to the hassle that inherently comes with running Tor Exit nodes. These issues include some mean emails and IP addresses and CIDR blocks being blacklisted by services like Netflix.

New nodes!

The good news is, I have recently launched three more nodes! These nodes belong to a …
