I wouldn't say it means nothing.  It appears to be going through every 
line in the log file and graphing the offset from each server from my 
system clock as time goes by.  That could have some value.  It lets me 
know how far out I am from the internet servers over time.  Many lines 
in the peerstats file represent my GPS, so deviations away from that 
baseline are what the internet servers are doing relative to me.

I get about 300 emails per day from alternate energy mailing lists and
such.  I don't always see new messages very quickly.  If you need a
reply and have not heard from me in 1 - 2 weeks, send your message again.)
