rx/tx load cheatsheet

During the holiday season this year I found myself in need of looking at the bandwidth metrics and needed to figure out load on the fly. Rather than do the math and possibly make a mistake I decided to use excel to my advantage and figure it out ahead of time. So taking this:

reliability 255/255, txload 201/255, rxload 49/255

And then compare it to this:
