I had already bumped my states limit, if that's what you're referring

Lately, I've suspected that a lot of my personal woes are due to the
fact that my exit node is running on an Intel Atom. I wasn't previously
aware of how much worse they are in the more subtle aspects of CPU

That said, it seems that updating to Tor has significantly
increased my throughput. Outside of that update, I haven't been working
on this problem lately.
