Hi Karsten, Arturo, and others,

Sorry for being out of touch for a couple weeks; I had some day job deadlines.

I've added more data (bandwidth, users) to site I'm working on:
And set the default time frame to be the last 3 months.

I have on my list to do the following:
1. Buttons to zoom in/out and pan forward/backwards in time.
2. Add GitHub repo link for code and issues.
3. Deal with making the UI for accessing countries better (e.g. show
the top countries and a drop down menu for the rest).
4. Get the performance data up.
5. Make the UI labels on the right for showing different graphs easier
to read when the selected/colored.
6. Make the graph line continue with the previous value if the data
value is null.

Please do submit issues to the GitHub repo page:
for another other things I should add/fix.

Arturo, the Atlas site looks really nice.  Perhaps once I get all the
basic functionality into the site I'm working on, there could be some
merging of efforts.  I could try to match the Atlas style as well.
