having 'real' stats is what generates the fun part. no stats, no spare
cycles from my machines and besides, without real v2 personal proxies,
i can't avoid (and can't afford) the on demand dialing costs of the 
german telekom. i believe the drop down of the key rate is a result of
the missing stats combined with the missing v2 personal proxies.
