Bacterial growth - logarithmic vs. exponential?

Why is the log phase of bacterial growth called the log phase, when it actually resembles an exponential curve rather than a logarithmic curve? I'm really dusty on my math, can someone explain this to me?

Site or application for logging text and photo messages?

For a research project, we’re asking ~24 high school and college students to log their experiences with homework by sending us text messages and photos over the course of about two weeks. Is there a site where they can send those messages so that we could see them from a computer? There are particular features we’re seeking... What comes closest to satisfying them? [more inside]

Great examples of ship logs, logbooks, captain's logs

I’m looking for examples from literature, film, or television that make heavy use of the ship’s log or captain’s log format as a key narrative device. And, actually, the ship need not be a ship and the captain need not be a captain – what I’m really looking for are official records of assignments or missions told methodically by someone in charge. Looking for fiction and non-fiction. [more inside]

What do BOUNCE and FAMILIAR mean in a WWII airman's logbook?

NAVY TERMINOLOGY HELP! I'm reading through my grandpa's old flight logs (he was on the crew of a PBY during WWII), and just need help deciphering a couple of terms I see again and again. Both are located in the "Remarks" column of the logbook: FAMILIAR & BOUNCE. Other terms like Ferry, Scouting, Patrol, and Photography are pretty self explanatory, but I have no idea what these two mean. Any help?

Log Browsing History

How can I get Firefox (3.0.1) to log my browsing history to plain text files (preferably XML, but any that isn't essential)? At a minimum I'd like the URL, page title, and a timestamp for when I loaded the page. It would be nice to have how the page was accessed (via a link? direct entry?) and how long was spent on it.

How can I keep a comprehensive film log?

I want to start a log of films I see, to include director, lead actors, genre, date viewed, etc, and my own review of the flick. This is for my own use only. Can anyone offer a recommendation for software to use/how to set it up in something standard like Excel so that I can search on any category but still have somewhat extensive space for my eloquent prose? Might also extend its use to books and music. I'm a mac user. Thanks!

Looking for log file analyzer

I'm looking for a website log file analyzer. This is not to display summaries or graphs, as in this thread, but to examine the activity of individual IPs and get a handle on what kind of hacking attempts, leeching, and other abuse might be going on. I have direct access to logs (something that can DL them would be nice, too). The $100+ software I found isn't an option.
