This is a typical log entry - showing the user hit the home page by either
typing in the URL, or pulling it from his bookmark file; note he is from uic.edu
(University of Illinois at Chicago) and calling in on a slip dial-up line running the registered version
of Netscape 2.01 under Windows 95.

This entry identifies a page at the cdlc.com site, with a reference to the
CIS home page; it also shows that someone at Harvard University in Boston
was there and visited the CIS page from it at about 1:05pm. After visiting
the site we find out this is an ISP in Hawaii putting a link to CIS on their
"Cardiac and diabetic WWW resources" page.

This entry is VERY interesting - it actually shows that another site
has copied part of the CIS pages and placed it on their server. In the case of
CIS, this is probably ok according to their terms, but some companies may not
be too thrilled about seeing their content copied and placed on an outside
network - SET can often identify these things.

This is another informative entry - it shows a user finding out about the CIS
site as a result of a seach on Yahoo - using keywords such as "cardiovascular"
and "health". This can help you better target people and find out what interests
your users have for visiting your site. What's also really neat is that you
can see the entire results of the user's search query - to identify what other
sites he may have visited, and what similar URLs were displayed in addition
