A lot of innuendos and false assumptions to set straight....
...or is this so misleading that an actual REAL number cannot be ascertained from this useless information in this discussion since it has no relevance to bandwidth usage anyway?
What I said was "hits" and that is what I meant, "hits" ....while hits may well be tallied in numerous ways, they all use bandwidth. It is only useless to those not in the know, but let me throw some other numbers at you Al.
Last month, AoB had:
Kinda slow, but still nothing to sneeze at. Our membership is a mere 500 and some odd people, yet we are viewed world wide, as the 231 entries from 25 countries in the Awards plainly show. Oh yes, no ads, no banners.....
How is this number derived?
Is there anyone else that can back this up?
Directly from the server Al, and yes, any editor can back this up, not that we have a thing to prove to you.
If this is true, (highly doubtful)
Doubt all you want Al, it's true and factual.
I have recieved emails (that was plural) from AoB and KoB asking for donations in the past so I think in all fairness all the forums must occasionaly ask for funds to achieve certain goals.
I have seen every email sent out by AoB, I never seen one asking for donations. Maybe I am wrong, "Is there anyone else that can back this up?"
I guess I'll sum this up with your own admission, "I have no idea about how internet sites work...."
and say, I do.
