I'm wondering if you'll find anything that will have all those stats set up for 
you, let alone accessible on one screen. If that's the case then you're stuck 
with dumping the data an analysing it yourself as you've been doing, so you'll 
have to concentrate on streamlining that process. I wonder if it could be 

You could try contacting the Eremaea site owners and making your suggestions 
for extra stats, but I doubt they'll want to make them available on one screen. 
There are Firefox plugins that let you split the Firefox window so that you can 
see several web pages at once, so it might be worth trying something like that. 
I often open several Eremaea search results in separate tabs so I can easily 
switch between them, but haven't felt the need to see them at the same time.

You did mention iPads, not sure what your options are with browsers on those.

>*       The fourth list gives me that missing breakdown of where I've
