This is amazing! Go Jan!

Inspired by this, I've added the PPHLogger tracking to the other main
pages on the OVC site, so that we can start seeing (in PPHLogger)
where people enter the site, where they browse, etc.

It looks (from seeing the last few minutes' traffic) like there's a
large percentage of the site's traffic that's entering at the ballot
demo and not browsing around the rest of the site. I'd suggest that we
put a copy of the 'please donate' sidebar onto the web demo page. Or,
while we're at it, add it to all of our web pages (via an include, I
hope).
