Dear Friends

Bit of a quiet month in April.  Expect things to pick up in May as more material is coming together.

Pauline O'Brien from Fremantle, WA, is working on a West Australian Lights page.  Had had a preview of it and it looks impressive.  Look forward to it's official launch.

Just for interest I have included the stats, from the counters, of how the Lighthouses of Australia pages have been going since they were launched in Dec 1997.  As I said they are only off the counters on index pages and very soon we hope to be able to get the stats of the ISP which should be more accurate, and show a much higher level of visitation as it will include hits to individual pages not covered by my own counters.

(for those with text only e-mail a formated copy of this table can be found at < http://www.lighthouses.org.au/lights/Bulletin/9805/Bulletin%20May%2098.htm > )

Popularity seems to be according to how many lights are accessable from an index therefore the more complete and comprehensive it is the higher the count.
