When sites such as http://bitcoinstatus.rowit.co.uk/ speak of hosts, are they speaking of Bitcoin Wallets?  I notice that mine has 51 connections at the moment.  Somehow I've been under the impression this is the case.

Thanks.

Besides, It'll drive me crazy trying to figure where it came from.

Each block is stacked on top of the previous one. Adding another block to the top makes all lower blocks more difficult to remove: there is more "weight" above each block. A transaction in a block 6 blocks deep (6 confirmations) will be very difficult to remove.

Yes, that's the total number of relaying nodes on the network.  99% of those are the Satoshi client / wallet.

That's what I thought.  I think I read that somewhere but couldn't be sure.

Thanks...
