Here are some January 1998 statistics for the Ada Home Web site
(<http://www.adahome.com>).

In (soon) four years of operation, the continued increase observed in the
number of visits and visitors is definitely a sign that interest in Ada
is and remains strong.  Not really surprising, since this is an excellent
language :-)


The January 1998 numbers:
(percentages are used to indicate evolution in one year)

In one month, 9,481 distinct hosts were served (+23%), including
firewalls and proxy servers for many large organizations and ISPs.
This translates to more than 10,000 Ada Home visitors in January 1998
(+25%).

We recorded 107,892 page requests (+15%, excluding graphics).

More than 14,000 requests were made for the main Ada Home page (+40%).

1.6GB of data was transferred (+42%, including graphics).

Note: due to widespread caching in proxy servers and on local disks,
the actual number of times Ada Home pages have been read is higher
than can be inferred from our server logs.


If you would like to contribute improvements to the Ada Home --for
instance to publish code, write an article, or announce a new piece
of software-- send email to <mailto:[log in to unmask]>.

The Ada Home is a private publication, independent of government
subsidies.

Cheers,
