Hello again all, Sorry for the absent communication but I finally caught up on all the email. I specifically was interested in running a node out of Iceland because there didn't seem to be any there yet. They also seem to be going through a political upheaval that might lead to a good hosting environment. Personally I notice that tor nodes suffer from a disturbing lack of geographic disparity. I'm also looking into places that fit my criterion major submarine cable connection hubs, such as Argentina. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong but I feel this is the best way to gain WORLD-wide acceptance/recognition of tor before countries can begin to legislate against hosting exit nodes. These are just my thoughts of course. -nood -------- Original Message -------- From: raidz <admin@xxxxxxxxx> Apparently from: torservers-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx To: <torservers@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> Subject: [tor] Re: Rokabear, Icelandic Hosting for Tor Date: Fri, 18 Feb 2011 00:07:21 -0800 > I might have come in late on this thread but what is the reason you > guys are looking into hosting in Iceland?
