I'd just like to thank Tobi and Dave once again for putting together this
toolset; currently, we're tracking 295,295 targets on 1450 network devices,
and adding more every day:

So far, we've been sticking with the regular log files since they work
better with the other realtime autogenerated network maps and capacity

Alas, I'm only going to be there for the exhibitor session, not for the
evening BoFs; here's hoping you have a fun and productive session! :)
Thanks again for all the hard work developing this wonderful framework--you
guys totally, totally ROCK!! ^_^
