Re: [tor-talk] OnionBalance Hidden Service has over 1 million successful hits in just 3 days



OK, you may be able to match the following times with your logs - each
had multiple connection failures (looks like any pending connection
died). Times are in UTC

1436393744 - Wed, 08 Jul 2015 22:15:44
1436396224 - Wed, 08 Jul 2015 22:57:04
1436399231 - Wed, 08 Jul 2015 23:47:11
1436400042 - Thu, 09 Jul 2015 00:00:42
1436400868 - Thu, 09 Jul 2015 00:14:28
1436403696 - Thu, 09 Jul 2015 01:01:36
1436404315 - Thu, 09 Jul 2015 01:11:55
1436405498 - Thu, 09 Jul 2015 01:31:38
1436406217 - Thu, 09 Jul 2015 01:43:37
1436407074 - Thu, 09 Jul 2015 01:57:54
1436409062 - Thu, 09 Jul 2015 02:31:02
1436409898 - Thu, 09 Jul 2015 02:44:58

There's no correlation between those times and entries in my Tor
client's log.
