Popcorn requires a connection to the internet to get statistics.  If the
machine is not normally connected to the internet, the stats are not reported.

No, I am not ignoring the ax25 packet status in ham radio.  When I posted to
linux-hams I received a rapid response.  There has been a consistent trickle
of kernel source patches for ax25 also.

Like all things ham radio, there is a significant difference in the number
of people who participate in ax25 / packet depending on the area you
are in.  APRS is fairly common in the metropolitan areas of the USA.  APRS
uses UI ax25 frames.  It is not infrequent to find the same location running
a APRS digipeater and a PBBS.  There is a coordinated effort in the state of
Virginia to use ax25 as a part of the disaster communications plan
