Yep, I've run Mike Perry's code before. It's all in torflow. I was also on a 1 gbits link, but as I recall it wasn't that saturated so you might be able to get away with a 500 mbits.
I last ran his scripts back in July, and the logs and other saved data consumed all remaining disk space. I don't know if I missed a cleanup step somewhere or if the issue was fixed since then, but it's something to be aware of.
