Works great here too.  Thanks for the SVG update for firefox 1.5.  I can 
now view the graphs in Linux(adobe svg plugin in Linux never worked for me).

And now for an odd question.  Why call it 1.21 when I think it is 
technically (in my mind anyway) 1.2.1?  I would think 1.21 would make 
most people that have no previous experience with m0n0wall think it is 
the 21st revision of major version 1.

This limits you to 9 revisions otherwise if the 4th octet went higher 
than 9...

is that 1.21.0 or 1.2.10?

I have only come across a few apps(or firewalls :) that are numbered 
like that so I am very curious why people combine the 2nd and 3rd octets 
in versions.  Are there some IDEs that default to that.  Do developers 
just want to keep everyone on their toes?  I guess I have just been 
burnt by previous apps when listed in a directory that combined the 2nd 
and 3rd octets and trying to distinguish what the version number really 
is.  Is it the 21st revision or the first revision of 1.2.

I am not trying to invoke a fight over what should or shouldn't be done 
with the version number... Everyone has a right to version things 
however they want... like I said... I am just curious what the thought 
pattern is for numbering in that way.
