As expected RePEc beat traffic records in the past months, with both 
EconPapers and IDEAS posting records. Over all services, LogEc recorded 
749,918 file downloads and 2,815,159 abstract views.

In other news, the RePEc Input Service was inaugurated a few days ago. We 
also experienced some email trouble as our email server was subject to a 
denial-of-service (DoS) attack. While the attack is still going on, we 
have found efficient was to deal with it. Finally, the following 
institutions joined RePEc with new archives: Academy of Economic Studies 
(Bucharest), Academia Romana, University of Strathclyde, Indiana 
University-Purdue University Indianapolis, Wolters Kluwer Health, Robert 
Schumann Centre, Institute of Development Studies (Brighton), Lebanese 
Economic Association, Institute of Labour Law and Industrial Relations in 
the EC (IAAEG).

And now the various thresholds we passed last month, with plenty of 
important ones this time:
30,000,000 cumulated downloads
10,000,000 article downloads
700,000 monthly downloads
475,000 online items
175,000 paper abstracts
100,000 papers announced through NEP
16,000 registered authors
2,000 online chapters
1,600 software components
