verbiage suggestion

It occurs to me that it would probably avoid a LOT of newbie confusion 
if instead of "bytes written" and "bytes read", the stats said "bytes 
sent" and "bytes received".  Anybody who doesn't know better intutively 
tends to grasp "bytes written" as what got written *to the hard drive* 
rather than what got sent over the pipe.
