Thanks!  That worked.

I'm not sure how useful this is, really, because the values change so
slowly -- maybe 350 sheets per day on a really busy printer, and only if
some bored person has decided to print out some huge Powerpoint file or all
the beanie babies for sale on ebay.

Maybe if I get to be a real mrtg expert, I'll figure some way to compress
the max and min values for the Y axis so that they are with 1000 units of
each other, and trends might be more visible.
