Depending on your needs you can concat the row key or use super columns.

The last 3 days is pretty simple: ['2010-08-07', '2010-08-06',
'2010-08-05'], as is 7, 31, etc. Just generate the keys in your app
and use multiget_slice.

If you want to get all days where a specific ip address had some
requests you'll just need another CF where the row key is the addr and
column names are the days (values optional again). Pretty much the
same all over again, just add another CF and insert the data you need.

get_range_slice in my experience is better used for "offline" tasks
where you really want to process every row there is.
