I know this is nanog, but there's more to the Internet than .com, .net and 
.org.

Any chance of next level domains under .(net|or|org|co|com|etc).<country> 
and .<country> (for those that dont use (or|org|co|com) distinctions)
being included in the same count? You'll see a number of these servers
weighing in at 3 to 5 times these figures... (ie, there are servers
that make it into your Top 200 on .com, .net and .org alone, where
those domains only make up a minority of the domains delegated/served)

Interesting, nevertheless.

It runs fine. Takes a few minutes to fire up though :-)
