Site Usage Continues to Grow

Statistics on this web site's usage have been tracked since the summer of 2008 using Google Analytics. This system collects a variety of data on the characteristics of visitors while still protecting their anonymity. For example, it allows us to identify the internet providers with "university" in their names who are making substantial use of our materials. However, since most materials on this site can be downloaded and hosted locally and several publishers (e.g. Norton) make use of these materials -- these statistics only provide a lower limit of usage. Interesting characterisitcs include the weekly cycle of usage (due to schools) and spikes (due to referring sites e.g. www.stumbleupon.com) and special events (e.g. equinoxes).

Usage has grown to over 1.5 million visitors during 2015.
