Visitor Statistics

In January of 1999, we began to be interested in how many people visited our web site since it generated a large number of emails. We were (and are) not interested in counting hits; for our purposes, hits are completely meaningless (which is why there is no hit counter on this site). We decided that we would count visits. For example, if a person surfed into our site and retrieved every single page, this would count as one visit. On the other hand, were that same person to leave the site and return later in the day, it would count as an additional visit. The resulting figures were charted in two different ways: total number of visitors by month and average number of daily visitors by month.

In September of 2004, we passed the 100,000 visitor mark for the current year; 2004 is thus the first year in which our site has welcomed more than 100,000 visitors.
