It was past usage I was thinking of:
Historical traffic
Monthly traffic in GB: (sorry, haven't added Nov data to this)
	beo 	deouk Total
June 	76.8	0 	76.8
July 	84.0	0 	84.0
Aug 	34.2	50.93	85.1
Sept 	43.6	82.12 	125.7
Oct 	41.2	104.6 	145.8

We moved to Ron's at the beginning of August. Eouk beo mirror launched

 become mere sounds, their etymology being
 buried, like so many of the earth's marvels,
 beneath the dust of habit." - Salman Rushdie
