Hi, and thanks for writing this program.  A few questions and

  1. Do you plan on releasing the source code?  Nobody should trust a
     security application if it can't be built from source.

  2. Why so large?  The nodeblockv11.rar file is over 3 MB in size; by
     way of comparison, the windows Tor installer itself is only 968K.

  3. It looks like you're distributing wget in binary form without
     including the source or the offer you received to get the source;
     unless I'm missing something, this is in violation of clause 3 of
     the GPL.

thanks again,
Nick Mathewson
