Last year I opened a PR campaign which advertised as the
"Number 1 ftp site in the galaxy". Well it looks like the hype has been
translated into reality. A lot of people ask me what is the turnover
of files at NIC, so I decide to give the statistics for the first day of 
the new year. There has been a steady increase in the number of logins per
day. It has risen from about 300 logins per day to over 1600, and the
download traffic has risen from about 150 MB to nearly 700 MB per day.
The upload traffic is minimal,and this is an area that needs to be worked on.

The heaviest users are the Finns themselves... well if you have a goldmine
then it is good that you mine it. The next heavy users are .edu and .com
from the USA, and there is a general tendency for the nordic countries to
be near the top of the users list.

So what is the point of all this trumpet blowing? It is just to wish everyone
every success for the coming year.
