The usage statistics start early March 1995 when the original server switched to keeping Common LogFile Format files. Earlier access information has been lost (the site was launched in August 1994) - the total usage of the site would be slightly higher but not appreciably so.
The first column of stats above includes both actual and robot accesses. The last column shows the hits from recognised robots; including Lycos, Alta Vista, Opentext, Info and Euroseek, Excite, Googlebot, Webcrawler, Inktomi, Alexa, Magellan, Northernlight, Planetsearch, Virgin, Wisewire and Muscat
Don't forget the obligatory disclaimer needed for any Web stats, that these figures can only really be used as an indication. On the one hand it is highly likely that caching servers will serve copies from their cache (and reduce the counts) and on the other hand determined robots can sweep though the complete site in an hour or two (inflating the counts).
