Good question here ... 'thin client' ... how does that handle the /var/db
bsdstats creates a 'state file' in /var/db that contains unique identifies for
the client connecting, so that a) its anonymous and b) it reports as the same
host regardless of IP changes ...
so, if /var/db is maintained across reboots, then running the stats script on
reboot will make sure the host is always reported, and /var/db/bsdstats will
make sure it doesn't report it as a new host each time its rebooted ..
