Hi Mirjam,  hello everyone else,

One of them is the IPv6 eye chart, a web page that allows you to test your connectivity to selected dual-stacked web sites and World IPv6 participants. The goal is to see if an end user has connectivity problems to dual-stacked websites.

First of all thanks for this again!

As we slowly see results from one or the other organization or volunteer project, I have a silly yet simple question - how many people have actually actively used your tool?  (and to others -- what about your tools?)

I am asking because you had FreeBSD on the ipv6eyechart from the beginning but looking at changes in v6 access or v4 vs. v6 access patterns I would have expected that these tools might be used a lot more and hits might be noticeable.  Contrary looking at or if you want a longer term picture starting end of March , I couldn't see any significant changes around World IPv6 Day.
I haven't even tried to analyze how many of these hits were by your chart (also given I only used anonymized, stripped down data to generate the graphs) as it might be a lot easier for you to say?

What had been the experience of others providing similar statistics, summaries, tests?   Has anyone seen a significant use from amongst the network operator people and (content provider) participants community, or by users?  Please share your experience!
