Hi Tore,

thanks for the suggestion. We are already in touch with the NLNOG Ring 
folks. They are really helpful! But, the more the better.

Also, for people playing with the client, it would be helpful to us if 
you use the --transmit command line switch. This will send information 
about the traceroute operation to us for further analysis.

Additionally, the endpoint "" is currently used for 
some variations of reverse traceroute, so some measurements might not 
work currently. You can just use any of the other endpoints.
