Just noticed something I liked about Tom's new status page; unless
I'm imagining, it seems to have been updated already, with Dec 12
reln counts. Not a replacement for individual or team stats, with the
intended focus on raising rates from new and/or smaller users; but
perhaps we can regard this as a NFSNET team stat, and compete with
ourselves to raise the (total) daily rate.

Any chance this is one of those English/European social things? Here's our
chance to demonstrate Community effort; freed from the (nasty) effects
of individual pride and greed. Go Team! -Bruce
