I wasn't suggesting LINX traffic was doubling every 100 days (it was 
tripling annually), simply pointing out that in 2001 Mike said that "a 
good rule of thumb during the late 1990's was that traffic doubled every 
100 days", and going into print with that shows it was an accepted meme 
at the time.
