Log Analysis for
1st Quarter 2000 - showed a healthy 41% increase in user sessions and a 38% increase in page views over 4th quarter 1999. There was a 93% increase in users over the same time period last year and a 132% increase in page views. Monday and Wednesday are the higher use days. That figure will diminish when the weather gets nicer.
1999 Yearly Figures show an outstanding 100,426 users requesting 310,586 pages. It's difficult to do a true comparison as we did not purchase the logging software until mid-February '99, but a rough estimate is that we nearly tripled our visitors/hits from the previous year.
Achievements for March/April
On-Going Projects for the coming month
