No worries.  Such things happen; I could have been more clear.

I'm glad to hear that!

I'll read those and see what I can get out of them.  I'm
glad that Lane has been involved in trying to work on this as 
well.  A while back he offered to work with me on a project if I wanted
to.  Perhaps this would be the oppurtunity to take him up on that as
we seem to have similar goals here.

This was actually one of the posts that inspired me to try to take some
action on this.  See [1] for my original post on Wikitech-l where I
mention that very blog post.  Roger mentions Wikimedia several times
in his blog post.

I've tried to do that with the Wikitech-l discussions.  I tried to read
through all of the previous discussions on the topic and sum up their
contents so that everyone was up to speed and could quickly figure
out what had been discussed before and why it didn't work.

You can see that post here: [2].  It might actually be worth giving
a look over even as this is a topic that has been discussed at least
a few times already in the Wikimedia Technical community.

> Thank you for running an exit relay!

You're welcome! Hopefully I can keep it online.  I went with Leaseweb
as they seem to be pretty friendly to relays.  I'm in talks with a
local datacentre here in my city in the United States to see if they'll
let me run a relay out of there as well.

Also I appologise to everyone for my long posts. I know that they are
a lot to read.

Thank you,
Derric Atzrott
