This isn't the first time I've plugged this feature of TorK and it probably won't be the last. Some of you seem to be Linux users, so this is just to let you know if you install TorK you can exclude routers on the basis of country code with a couple of clicks. The caveat is that the identification of the router's country of origin is only as good as the maxmind geoip db - which is fairly reliable in 99.X% of cases. http://tork.anonymityanywhere.com
