Thanks. How do I restart Tor? I originally started it with

~> tor -f /etc/tor/torrc

but when I rerun that command, I get

~> tor -f /etc/tor/torrc
Jul 24 12:41:40.393 [notice] Tor v0.2.0.35. This is experimental software. Do 
not rely on it for strong anonymity. (Running on Linux x86_64)
Jul 24 12:41:40.393 [notice] Initialized libevent version 1.4.5-stable using 
method epoll. Good.
