No, better it should have a bar-graph display; all those yellow lights
will be hard to tell apart. Now, what units would TCP/IP non-compliance
be expressed in? Obviously the technical name of the quantity being
measured is something like "bogosity", but what are the units? :-)

(By analogy to whetstones and dhrystones and the like, I'm tempted to
suggest "Millstones"!)
