Typo.  I would NOT have the courage to run tor from home....

I did worry about added latency. Ping tells me only 1-2ms added...the proxy
must be close by.  And speed still 70Mbs each way.  I am afraid not offering
TOR all that bandwidth as need my server for my day job.

Additional latency, and giving the proxy service access to all your Exit's
