Couldnt agree more (not just because of the compilers).

I know this is a Q to Kim, but...
A guy called Hankin Chick developed this massive traceroute 
analyser that maps the connectivity of ISPs to each other.
The problem was that it was hard to show in 2-D (although
he managed) and even harder to see in 3-D.  I think most ISPs
remember his pages (he used to get into trouble for reporting
average Ping times from the US).
Has anyone got any ideas on how to show 634-odd ISPs interconnecting,
especially with the multi-homing stuff, the tunnelling stuff (Paradox?),
and other complications such as traceroutes on Asymmetrical 
satellite links?
I think Hankin could be persuaded to put his pages back up if
the distribution was limited to ISPs or a small group.
