The increase in UK figures you saw may not be due to the method of
collection, but rather a real effect. Our own figures showed a substantial
increase this month -- about 4,200 "real" hosts. (Our accounting of
"real" hosts is always a bit more conservative than yours -- we identified
40636 this month, rather than the 43301 you saw. This is possibly because
we have a better (local) understanding of what constitutes a duplicate?)
We still have a considerable number of JIPS sites that have not yet
delegated so I guess we'll carry on growing for a while yet...
