Web demo statistics

I have made some statistics for how many have tried the on-line demo
ballot (link from the OVC home page). The logs started Apr 9, soon
after it was started. I thought it might be interesting, since
the statistics for the OVC pages doesn't seem to go back that far.

What I have counted is the number of times the "PRINT MY BALLOT"
button has been pushed:

It is easy to see the effects from Slashdot (Apr 22), userfriendly
(Oct 27), electoral-vote.com (Nov 1-, beating Slashdot) and all
other recent activities.

I noted that not all traffic came from the OVC home page: yesterday
most of the traffic actually came from an Italian site:

  http://www.zeusnews.it/index.php3?ar=stampa&cod=3510&numero=999

(is Matteo Campofiorito a pseudonym for Matteo Giacomazzi?).

There are now some 4000 votes in the logs. Can we do something fun
with those? I can easily generate XML-versions of the ballots from
them.
