Log Analysis 
Ran weekly and posted on the Members Only page.  User sessions in December jumped an astounding 43% over November figures to 26,887 and web page views an even greater 56% to at 97,189.  The only explanation I can arrive at is the "fixing" of our problems with the www.waynet.wayne.in.us domain.  This URL is used extensively by other web sites and is the bookmarked URL by many long-time users.

4th Quarter 2001 - Quarterly figures for user sessions and page views declined by 1% for the first time since we began tracking.  This is attributable to the reduced figures in October when we lost several days of our logs and the reduced numbers in November for the .in.us domain problem. 4th Quarter '01 usage increased 25% over 4th Quarter '00. 

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.
