It's a hit! (Updated) On Saturday many of our readers wrote to say the site was down, displaying a 'bandwidth limited exceeded' notice. We were not sure of the reason: but know we know that it is indeed because of a huge amount of visitors to the site.

Some of the figures are below (with March 2005 stats in brackets for comparison). In short unique visitors have risen 300 per cent and visit numbers 200 per cent since that previous busiest period in March 2005.

April 2007 so far (March 2005 for comparison)
Unique visitors: 61324 (19004)
Number of visits: 89884 (40453)
Hits: 8129786 (4836188)
Bandwidth used: 20.88 GB (8.86 GB)

Figures updated 26 April 2007.

We're very very happy with these figures. Bear in mind that the site was dormant for 2 years until just 10 days ago. So it has taken off from a standing start.

Those interested can see more stats on Alexa, which also show a very steep rise.

Please keep spreading the word about this site, linking in, and feeding us the latest info and insight.
