The logs are in /var/log/apache/host/ (and consume about 3.6 gigs there --  
we never throw anything way).

And we run AWStats, so you can get traffic stats & reports from the server 
itself.  I'll send you the link and password offlist.  It's password 
protected because it run's as a CGI that is pretty resource intensive & 
slow.  We probably should generate static reports periodically, but I never 
bothered since you're the first person besides me to ask :-)

I haven't paid much attention to WEO's traffic changes over time, but I 
know off the top of my head that BEO used to average over twice that much 
traffic per month.  I know BEO traffic has declined steadily over the last 
year or two, to settle around 40% of its former glory because our Google 
AdSense revenue from BEO (our only significant revenue) has declined along 
with it, from $100+ per month to about $40 a month.
