For Halloween/2004, there is the stats from webcam program itself for and all 33 days of operation.
1,176,888 hits, 350,210 page views, 146,143 unique IP's, and 17.9 GBytes - WOW!
Tons of web sites mentioned my Halloween stuff, and noteable ones that generated quite a bit of inbound traffic were Earthcam, Ernie's House of WhoopAss, Fark, The Inquirer, Kim Komando, MajorGeeks, Slashdot, User Friendly, #!/usr/bin/girl, USA Today, and even the X10.com folks (who were nice enough to send me some X10 gear). I talk in detail about the traffic from some of these in my Slashdot Effect analysis.

BTW guys, this is my personal family web site, so give it a break, allright - call off the "bots" and the hacking attempts ...
