Subject [ANNOUNCE] New site stats
Date Sat, 09 Nov 2002 00:59:29 GMT
Hi Forresters,

We discussed a bit (with Steven) about building apache 
projects/hosts/etc stats, which is one of the tasks for the Forrest, so 
I guess this announcement is not completely offtopic on this list.

I'd like to announce a page I put together which to show off some of the 
stats which I was able to extract from the log files (with minimum 
memory consumption). These stats in no sence are complete or correct, 
but an attemp to build complete and correct stats.

URL for the page is:

Images are updated daily (and some of them - weekly), at night. Site is 
statically generated using Forrest.

Please take a look and send your suggestions, opinions, flames.
