I've decided to quit rolling my logs off into the bit bucket myself as
less than half of my blocks make it to the statistics page.

My home system does 425kk/sec, about 140 blocks/day. Three systems at
work do 450kk/sec combinded, and the PowerMac does 600kk/sec. I should be
averaging 1400kk/sec, or over 450 blocks per day (I'm rounding down).

All systems appear to be reporting OK. Those at work are directed
thru a personal proxy. Am certain I'm not spelling my email address
wrong, there are only 2 dkelly's in the stats.
