[tor-talk] my tor connection always timed out these days

Looks like about 80% of bridge relays are blocked from China these
days (via the March 2012 progress report:

"We developed a tool for scans of bridge lists which attempts to
    either open a simple TCP connection to the bridge’s OR port or that
    will perform a full Tor handshake to the bridge. We tested the
    scanner by running a scan from Germany,
    and comparing results to bridge reachability information obtained
    from the bridge authority in The Netherlands. We also performed a
    scan from China,
    and found that over 80% of bridges were unreachable. We compared
    active scan results to passive usage statistics,
    and confirmed that bridges that were found as unreachable in the
    scan also reported significantly fewer connections from China than
    other bridges."

If you can't make a TCP connection to your bridge addresses, you may
need to just keep requesting more until it works.
