relax, I'm not complaining. We are all volunteers not being payed for
writing tor code.

yes, I noticed that without mentioning it on this list. It appears to be
a common misunderstanding in coding between 2^10 and 10^3.

did my node stop publishing its descriptor again? Traffic has dropped
about 80% within the last hours. Have a look at the attached graph.

maybe I take your advice and add php code at blutmagie tns to sum up the
extra-info average rate data and print the so calculated bandwidth
instead of max observed one.

Regarding superpages: Is it possible to figure out how much cpu time
being wasted in address translation with on-board means like vmstat? But
I'm certainly not going to migrate my tor node to Windows. Never ever! ;-)
