Here is a summary of software and data transactions
at the IUBio archive for the last three weeks.  Note
that Gopher usage is pretty high, and that it is as
widely used throughout the world as is FTP.  Also,
many people use Gopher as a way to read network news
(bionet news here, other news at other archives).
