Bandwidth doing OK

Just to let you guys know, our bandwidth usage is within acceptable
limits: around 2 GB/day now. We can use on average 2.5 GB a day (our
monthly limit is 75 GB) so we're at least in the safe zone. We're still
working on lessening this, but the heat is off.
http://belgarath.linuxfromscratch.org/webalizer/ is where the stats are
on a per-subdomain basis. The "all" directory (/webalizer/all/) are the
stats of all the domains merged for easy keeping track of where things
are on a global level. The "All" stats didn't start until the 21st of
this month, so it's still pretty new.
But, from the 21st up to now, 20% of all traffic is images, with
blfs-support.mbox.bz2 downloads on second place (5% of all traffic), the
/ access is 3rd with 3.9% and the stylesheets #4 with 3%.
That's a nice 25% traffic of just pretty pictures and stylesheets. I
have gotten an email from Jeremy to the server-admin list regarding
Caching. I've quickly looked into Apache's mod_expires module and it
seems to do what we need. I'll look into this asap and have to figure
out how to properly test this.
I'm guessing I can tell Apache to have expire info for .html files and I
can create a 100 MB or something large html file in a test subdomain,
load it once and then a second time and check the iptables HTTP-OUT byte
counter making sure it's not increasing by 100 MB to my IP addy.
If somebody knows of an easier test, do let me know. I'm all for saving
