Re: [tor-talk] TorBirdy seems to connect to the same exit node again and again

Hello Leeroy,

Cool! Thank you! Works like a charm :)

Terminal commands are becoming my favorite. They sort of remind me of
writing games with my brother from some books he had. Boy was he cool.

Thanks again to everyone involved, looking into my little torbirdy world
and replying and suggesting fixes!!!
