A reply from the Prime Ministers Office at 10, Downing Street can be seen on an early web page (click here), which followed the Council's decision to notify the P.M. that we were taking up his suggestions about the use of the Internet and the World Wide Web.
Michael Talbot, who manages the Web site for the Parish Council said, "I am delighted with this recognition for our site. We have many visitors who I am sure will be equally pleased with this news. I report each month to the Parish Council, the number of 'hits' recorded since the previous monthly meeting and on occasions this number has exceeded 500,000 - half a million hits! Our Parish of St Osyth is known now in all corners of the world!"
Hit - A single action on the Web server as it appears in the log file. A visitor downloading a single file is logged as a single hit, while a visitor requesting a Web page including two images registers as three hits on the server; one hit is the request for the .html page, and two additional hits are requests for the downloaded image files. While the volume of hits is an indicator of Web server traffic, it is not an accurate reflection of how many pages are being looked at.
