traffic records

Since spacenear.us generates a large number of AJAX requests, we count visitors by unique IP. This includes bots (but that shouldn't matter too much on the scale of these records), and doesn't count the “two people from one family internet connection” case.

Due to log rotation and my laziness, visitors are measured 6am-6am but traffic is measured 12am-12am UTC. Inbound traffic is not counted in the last column since it would be inflated by the predictor running dataset downloads running on the same server
