and 20,000,000 visits later

The Main Website reached another milestone early this morning - the 20 millionth visit.

The site began long ago, you can find a history and timeline on the website.

Until the site got its own domain - on the Feast of Blessed Damien de Veuster (10 May 2002) no logs and very few stats were available. On that first day, there were 45 visits - viewing 495 pages.

Over the years the site has greatly expanded in content and in users. For example, last month there was an average of over 7,000 visits looking at over 36,000 pages each day. Over 1,850 people belong to the groups that receive emails about updates.

And today, the total number of visits passed 20 million. During those visits, folks viewed 128 million pages. Not bad for 10.4 years of service :-)

For reference, it took 6.2 years (July 2008) for the first 10 million visits. It has taken only 4.2 years for the second 10 million!

All I can say is Thank You!
