I'd love an account of why anyone should care in the least about SSC 
download statistics, beyond personal vanity.  (Which I don't discount, 
or scorn--at times when I had somewhat more popular programs, I would 
eagerly look each month to see where they were in the rankings.  But in 
the end, so what?)
