The predecessor of Allpar had just moved from Mordor to Simplenet, at z.simplenet.com/cc/, and we were tracking visitors given the change in address.
“During May 1997, there were 4,190 individual visitors; 5,240 total visitors; and 124,285 hits, with 476,745K transmitted. As the month went on and more search-service listings took effect, this number increased. Unfortunately, our mainstays (Altavista and Yahoo) did not record us; Altavista incorrectly has us as a spammer and will not allow the entry of our URL, and Yahoo is simply behind in its updates.
Most visitors came from America On-Line, though Boeing had a strong presence for some reason.” (It was later pointed out to us that since Boeing used the same CATIA system as Chrysler, many Chrysler people were hired by Boeing after the takeover was announced and engineers started to flee; the Boeing visitors may have been ex-Chrysler employees, or Boeing managers looking for information on the projects that job applicants had worked on.)
