Don't you believe it. Over the last year we have seen a steady downward
drift in the percentage of our traffic which goes to the US -- a 20%
change over the last year, I think.


I wonder how much of this drop can be attributed to the closure of the Louvre
in Paris and the Delft Institute of Technology closing the 17th floor to US


It isn't a drop, it's an increase in the amount of Web traffic flowing
from the UK to the US.
