Re: Some router descriptors not being downloaded

The descriptors do show up in cached-routers and/or cached-routers.new
(is there a time limit as to when Tor would use those descriptors?)

I don't see any cached-descriptors and I am using tor I was
using an older version earlier and just updated yesterday. I also
don't see any cached-consensus files under ~/.tor

I stop and restart all the time... I would like not to have to run Tor
for hours to be able to use the Entry/Exit nodes I want.

Thanks for the reply.
