Now that the EC2 Instance is set up and active, do I have to press the Launch Instance button at the top of the page on my Amazon EC2 Dashboard?  Do I have to do anything at all?  Under "Status Check", it says "2/2 checks passed.  So does that mean it's live and what not?

After selecting an image and clicking through a few screens, you
should see a window with "Your instances are now launching". You
should then be able to see this instance in the main list, with "2/2
checks passed" and the state "running" You do have to make sure that
all four required ports (22, 443, 40872, 52176) are open in the
firewall (called the security group).

You can connect to the instance with ssh and use arm (with sudo -u
debian-tor arm) to look at different stats, such as bandwidth, logs,
configurations, connections, etc.
