More hits than people

Universetoday.com report that NASA's web server has had more hits since the Spirit rover landed on Mars than there are people on Earth. Hits are a terrible way to record the number of people visiting your site especially when you realise that there are about 54 different images on the Rover homepage each generating their own hit. To give them credit, the NASA press release does mention that the number of web pages downloaded is around 914 million. So almost 1 billion then - not bad.
