This is great.

On the other hand, I can't understand the staggering amount of telnet
traffic. More than email, almost as much as ftp data, most Internet users
must still be on character oriented displays?! I guess if the telnet
numbers start dropping, then we can assume that people are making CGI front
ends to databases (like the Library of Congress) normally accessed via a
telnet session.
