My view actually hit 200k on Wednesday morning, then dipped back under
by a few hundred on Thursday.

I was kinda hoping that it would hit 200K on Tuesday, then I could have
added the announcement to my aggregation recommendations lightning talk!
;-) Bit sad that a 200K table can be aggregated down to 109k prefixes
with no loss of path information (in my BGP table view).
