Thanks my platform. (Windows 7 64bit)

I didn't have to do this. I guess I could do that, but "normal" end
users might not. (I know about the FP design.)

I thought the progress would have stopped here, but it just took much
longer than expected.
[Notice] Bootstrapped 50%: Loading relay descriptors.
Starting TBB again, reduces the time.
Might be the proxy that is in use, because on retrying again, I "stuck"
at 85% or 90%.

The bridge log lines were the only difference.

Browsing is slower (due to the proxies in use I assume), but aside from
that I could use it to get the information I require.

Maybe I was lucky. I couldn't say that I noticed that.
It's an alpha bundle, but I did not expect it to dump everything where
the executable was. (Tor Browser\) I thought I would be able to select
where to extract.
I also saw a, to some maybe scary, console. Might be alpha stuff.
There might be more testing required for the durable of proxies. I
report back if I find something strange.
