Everything in gump suffers from the "data pollution" problem that there 
is way more data than you really need.

I'm working to address the problem in three aspects:

  1) making logs less verbose and more interesting
  2) making email stand out and information easy to grasp at a glance
  3) making static web pages with more readable stylesheets and add some 
charts of the history of the data

this without modifying the current architecture.

the webapp phase will happen next, once I'm done with this.
