     That is apparently long out of date.  I've been running tor in
server mode off and on over the past year and have never seen it use
more than 300-400 connections at once, and it was a rare situation
for the count to get even that high.  Usually the count of open
connections has been under 200, often under 100.  A hard limit of
290 connections might be a problem on the sort of high-bandwidth
server Ricky intends to run, but it seems unlikely that he would
need 1024.
