And even the CPU stats listed are going to be inaccurate, as a bunch of
that data is going to be outdated.  I registered some systems a long time
ago (Debian 0.93R6) and I know at least two of those systems are long
since dead and buried.  How many people do you think, after registering
a machine, are going to go back and remove their entry once the machine
is decommissioned?

Anyway, it seems I am flogging a dead horse now, so I'll shut up ...
