OK, as Geoff asked for some stats, I may as well shove some up here. I'll also publish the stats at the end of each month for the sake of continuity.

Since November 2005 I have been running <a href="" target="_blank">Statcounter</a> on this website, allowing me to see how many hits we're getting, which pages are being looked at, and all sorts of other interesting stuff.

Before I put January 2007's stats up, here are the stats for each quarter of 2006. I'm ignoring November and December 2005 for the sake of choosing a convenient cut-off point.

Quarter One 2006 - 01/01/06 - 31/03/06

Unique Visitors: 10,423

Busiest Day: Thursday, 23rd February - 3,328 page loads

Quarter Two 2006 - 01/04/06 - 30/06/06

Here are the definitions of what the above means:

First Time Visitors - Based purely on a cookie, if this person has no cookie then this is considered their first time at your website.

I have other stats too, but my log size isn't big enough for me to be able to go back to 2006 with these, so it only shows recent activity.

For example, earlier today, a "mystery user" logged in from Sweden, using MSIE 7.0 and the Windows 2003 OS set to a screen resolution of 1600x1200 with Javascript enabled.

This mystery user visited the site for 3 minutes and 33 seconds - his 93rd return visit since he last saved a cookie from this website on that computer.

I know his host name and IP address and the name of his ISP.

I'm watching you Hakan :)
