Thank you for the note. I just wanted to advise that the AS that I'm provising 
new nodes on presently is crowded as my other site isn't ready yet (it's a 
colo so I have to physically ship new equipment there) but my intention is to 
introduce more FreeBSD Exits to Tor, not just ordinary relays. I think we 
could always use a few more exits even in this AS.

The newer infrastructure is Xen based now. So far we've successfully added 
nine FreeBSD Tor Exits in the past few days. I think that's great for OS 
Diversity and for expanding the amount of capacity and overal quaility of 
service we provide to our end users.

Thank you to everyone for your interest and if you are interested in running a 
FreeBSD or even a...Linux Exit relay with a one month trial please don't 
hesitate to let me know.

Finally, I've been asked - what's my motivation here? Honestly, I'm supporting 
the community and the Torproject, and I wish I could do it for free, but I 
have to charge for the cost of hosting+slight overhead. I don't make a profit. 
This project is here because I see a huge gap in high speed exits and want to 
provide the community the opportunity to help. I hope that smooths over any 
questions anyone has.
