Hey Nick, 

Is there a particular reason you want to use AWS? 

Unless you are still on the free tier, I think you could find far a more
economical VPS provider. I currently run a tor relay for 5 euros a month
using http://www.edis.at/en/home/. 

http://lowendbox.com/ is a good resource to find cheap VPS providers.

I'd like to have another go at setting up a Tor relay on AWS eu-west-1. I haven't had the time to look into this, unfortunately. If you want an eu-west-1 bridge, then you can set up an Ubuntu instance and follow the steps in the ec2-prep.sh [1] script to turn it into a Tor Cloud bridge.

Many thanks!
