Re: [tor-talk] sadly have to shut down my tor relay after less then 24 hours



No they did not as you saw in the excerpt I posted. I told them now all is well with out going into detail. I had 24 hours to send them an all clear or they would restrict my network bandwidth and I want the gigabit connection for all the services I run on my vps. So it has ben up and running I believe since Sunday now, or was it Monday. Now I wait for the full cycle to take effect and hope someone can use the 50mbps bandwidth I set up. Hopefully the network will be a lot faster as I'm not actually using that but for icecast and some streaming services.
