Re: Tor limitation

i'd say you need to try out the latest alpha release then, the dns resolution problem is more of a problem with the 'stable' release. I'm not sure exactly the reason, something about it making new circuits more quickly or something.

I'm in Beijing and I'm happy that Tor is there when I need it. In
fact, en.wikipedia.org is now blocked by my ISP, so Tor is almost
essential. But yes, it's pretty slow, though I'm patient. Only lately,
I'm consistently getting DNS lookup failures, and that's what's mostly
eroding my experience of using Tor all the time. (I know I should
change the config of my client to give more logging info so I can
track down this bad exit node, but I haven't made the effort yet.)
