I've been running my non-exit Tor relay for many months now and for the last 3-4 months unthrottled. It averaged well above 500 Kilobyte/s. Since I signed up for Tor Weather earlier, I assumed I would receive the "get your shirt!" mail some day. But now it has been so long and I still did not get it.

My router has not been running without interruptions. I sometimes updated Tor, sometimes other things required me to stop it for short periods. I assumed Tor Weather would take that in mind.

I read and also asked in IRC:

<me> hm, according to the i need to run it uninterrupted for the timespan
<Sebastian> that sounds not what the intention of our tshirt giveaway is
<Sebastian> because a node can become unavailable through no fault of the operator for a short period of time
<Sebastian> please definitely file that bug now

So here it is! And I will send a mail to the donations address about the shirt. :-)

Sebastian thinks we should change the algorithm as follows:

Even if a node goes down for longer periods of time, we should simply add up all the uptime we have seen, and, if it reaches the tshirt threshold, send out tshirt email.

I've had my server up for a few months with small outages as well, and I've been excitedly waiting for my T-shirt as well.

I noticed that as well, it resets all data when node is down:

I agree with Sebastian's change idea (via kaner above) and implemented it, please review at
