No but mostly yes. It's more a surprise factor: when I tell people tor
uses HTTP to upload and download things, they're not surprised - when
I tell them it has its own HTTP server implementation that does all
the parsing of the requests, they're much more surprised.  I'm not
saying tor's code is insecure (I put up a $bounty inside my company
with my own money to anyone who finds a bug in it actually) - but
implementing your own HTTP server is not a recommended action. :)

As far as the sources.... well, I made it in keynote. Yes, I know I'm
a bad person. I can export it as powerpoint, html, images, or pdf and
send you any one of those five. (Or all of them.)
