RE: Exclude nodes from certain countries

Fyi, what you are asking for is exactly what we are working towards with
http://pickaproxy.com - allowing you to pick or exclude exit nodes by
Country - where Tor is setup on our server as a client to your workstation.
We are calling this "geospoofing".

I understand the part about running squid on localhost and routing web
brouser through it. I can route the traffic from the brouser to squid and
then into tor.

But how can I route Tor client through localhost proxy? Tor client has to
make an encrypted connection to Tor entry node. Do you mean putting squid in
the middle of that encrypted connection? How would you do that?

Plus, that will only filter the entry nodes by country. But I want to avoid
EXIT nodes from certain countries. The entry nodes do not see my traffic, so
I don't really care about them. However the exit nodes can see all my
traffic in clear text, so it's the exit nodes that I want to filter by
country (sorry if I didn't make it clear in my original post).
