We’re a small nonprofit that develops free and open source software used by millions, and our community of contributors and users would greatly benefit from improved documentation on Tor.

Through Season of Docs 2019, we're looking for technical writers to help us: blog.torproject.org/google-sea

Prefer doing fresh installs to in-place upgrades! The latter are often not quicker than fresh installs because, yes you keep your settings and apps, but have to deal with bizarre problems that are nowhere documented (yet) and this often uses more time than doing everything from scratch (provided you have your backups ready)

It is indeed the more complicated part to find out, what the actual costs will be and what EC2 and EBS type you need! It seems I'd have to cough up at least $34.26/mo for a1.medium and 500GB storage.

OK, so the migration is done. Both sun.spaceobservatory.su and planets.spaceobservatory.su are up and running on

The real challenge here is to understand the resource needs, resource limits and the billing process, so you can estimate costs. My Free Tier account is already running up charges, so that's kind of surprising...
Thankfully, this is a test migration anyway intended to understand the process.

The Tor 0.3.5 series includes several new features and performance improvements, including client authorization for v3 onion services, cleanups to bootstrap reporting, experimental support for NSS in place of OpenSSL, and more: blog.torproject.org/new-releas

I seem to finally have managed to configure and run a #Tor node on #FreeBSD. There was one remaining issue with DNS opening too many sessions and causing a time-out. That is fixed now. Yipee! First achieved milestone of 2019!
