Over the past few days, I've been working with Paul Schmehl and Matthew
Seaman to come up with a more "security sensitive" version of BSDstats ...
one that reduces the amount of "sensitive information" stored in the
database down to ... zero. No IPs, no hostnames ...
This new version also reduces the number of 'network fetches' down to 4
for the first run, and 3 for subsequent runs, so it runs a bit faster, and
talks across the network less.
And, finally, this one has its own domain for check in server ...
None of the pre-v3.x clients can talk to the v3.x server, since the DB
format has totally changed, so everyone needs to grab the latest version
and run it so that we can re-sync the database properly ...
