Cool! One statistic I think would be interesting to see is the probability
of finding the key in the next 24 hours. By my reckoning, this figure
currently stands at about 0.4%.

Another one would be attached to each domain and would indicate the probability
that the given domain will eventually find the key, based upon current
rates and assuming rates stay the same.
