The only potential problem I see is if people embed those graph images on popular websites, the Atlas project will need to serve a lot of requests from the public - probably not a big issue, but would need to be considered. In the meantime, I imagine you could whip up a script to periodically screen-scrape the Atlas interface to grab a copy of the graph you want to share with the world and cache it on your server; whether that would be considered OK by RIPE, I don't know, but I see no real reason it shouldn't. -- David Precious ("bigpresh") <davidp at preshweb.co.uk> http://www.preshweb.co.uk/ www.preshweb.co.uk/twitter www.preshweb.co.uk/linkedin www.preshweb.co.uk/facebook www.preshweb.co.uk/cpan www.preshweb.co.uk/github
