creation costs plus the first year of the $60 not-for-profit
membership fee. They are taking the suggestion back to their

Ran weekly and posted on the Members Only
page. User sessions have been stable for the last three months, averaging
36,228 users per month.
Web page views have also remained stable, averaging 112,748. I
would expect these numbers to remain flat for the remainder of the year or
perhaps rising slightly once the word get out that the Pal-Item obits can
be reached in one click from WayNet.org.
3rd Quarter 2002
- Quarterly figures for user sessions rose by 61%. Page views
rose by 34%. The fact that we have more user sessions is good in
that it means we're reaching more people.
2001 Yearly Figures
show an outstanding 260,875 users requesting 930,554 pages as
compared to 204,689 users requesting 667,511 pages in 2000. This is
a 27% increase in users and a 39% increase in page views over 2000. Our
actual figures were somewhat larger than this due to the problems involved
when the web site was moved to the new server due to the virus problem and
we lost access to the log files for the web site. Logs were
reset approximately October 10.
2002 Yearly Figures
- As of the end of October, we have already surpassed last years
figures. So far we have served 342,772 users who have accessed
1,509,385 pages, a 31% increase in users and a 14% increase in hits.
