Curiously, Webalizer reports that people are retrieving 400-600 GB per 
month from my simple home server.  The traffic is legitimate, but I 
wonder whether Webalizer is counting partial downloads as complete 
downloads.  I know the number is at least in the ballpark, since 
'ifconfig' reports it has transmitted 276 GB in the past 22 days, but 
that also includes a lot of LAN traffic.

I guess I'd be a horrible customer for UTOPIA. ;-)
