Hobbit monitor :: a nice BigBrother replacement

it took me a bit to hunt down the good community of Hobbits, and it is well worthy. Hobbit Monitor's site is not kept up-2-date. Wonder whether the wrong impression people get off the SF site misled people to believe it is not maintained up-to-date. The Hobbit Monitor seems to be nice & functional Big Brother replacement. The active development and the author responds to mailing-list question and code/attach patch while discussing a bug with an end-user, is reminiscent of the early open-source days or early Internet days. I definitely like the ACK feature and the zoom-in on history and trend graph (guess it'd be part of the rrdtool function as well).
