Dear Roger,

I did wonder if the "about" screen was always served but I'll note that
when I tried to load TBB with a non-exit node, I never got as far as the
"about" screen.

The only reason I'm interested in "freja" is because I saw it's IP was the
last login to one of my accounts. I checked the IP with WHOIS and got
concerned. Then I checked "torstatus" and was relived that it was a Tor
node. Then I got confused because it wasn't an exit node.

My point is that the IP of "freja" was the last login. So, unless there's
a scenario I haven't thought of, surely it must at some point on Tuesday
have been an exit node? Is there a way to check this?
