UK only tor exit nodes

In light of last night's Panorama I thought that I'd investigate setting up onion routing to only exit in UK exit nodes so that I could enjoy UK-centric content with the benefit of a degree of anonymity.

Installation

Is very simple for debian-type systems. Simply follow the instructions here.

Configuration for UK only exit nodes:

Edit file /etc/tor/torrc and insert these lines at the end.ExitNodes {GB}
StrictExitNodes 1
NumEntryGuards 6
KeepalivePeriod 60
NewCircuitPeriod 15
Restart torsudo /etc/init.d/tor restartThat's it. It works like a charm.
