New counter

January 21, 2003

As you might have noticed, I made the counter visible about a week ago (below the menu). For the past few years I've been using a Perl script called Count to keep track of the number of visitors to the site. My major beef with Count is that it will only report back an image of the counter value, not plain-text. Though it offers quite a few options regarding the look of the image, I wanted plain-text so as to keep with the overall layout of the site. To make a long story short, I wrote a very simple (six lines) PHP script to do the counting and now I have a plain-text count value.  :)
