Yesterday August 8th millstreet.ie passed a small milestone … 2 million articles viewed on the site since we started counting the stats in August 2009. We’d just like to say thanks to you our viewers and contributors coming back over and over to see what’s new and engaging with the site.
All the work we do is voluntary simply because we enjoy it, but funding to keep the site servers working comes from the Millstreet Museum Society. The museum’s only source of funding is from personal donations and from the church gate collection which is on next weekend. We’re only a small part of the cost of running the museum, so if you can afford a few bob to keep the show on the road please drop in something.
Not to bore you with the site stats ……. but on average we get:
750 different visitors per day (real people, not robots)
2,500 pages per day
30,000 photos per day
65,000 objects served per day (one every 1.3 seconds)
1,664,299,827 Bytes of data per day
and these numbers are growing from month to month … not bad for a small town of 1500 people, but of course our catchment area is much bigger, and our disporia around the world is as big again.
Lest I forget, the site actually goes back to around 1999 when Seán and Hannelie made the first brave steps at setting up the site. They are the stars for starting it ! – Michael
