To be fair, that's not a hotel-only problem.  We've seen that problem within
the IT industry.  Actual discussion with a vendor who wanted to analyze our
logs so they could size a solution:

"Send us a day's worth of logs" "OK"
...
"We said a *day's* worth, not a *week*". "That *was* a day"
"Wow, that logfile was huge, we didn't think anybody actually did that much traffic a day..."

The sad part was that the vendor in question *really* should have known better,
we're pretty sure they targeted their solution at many sites bigger than us.

Or maybe the other sites are bigger, but we pound the bejeebers out of stuff. I dunno.
