A note about the above counter:  My counter is configured to count visitors to my site, not page hits.  Some counters are incremented once for each time any page is accessed -- nothing wrong with that, but it has a lot less meaning for me than a count of visitors to a site -- and some sites misrepresent a page hit counter as being a visitor count.  Test the counter above -- make a note of the count, then open several of my pages.  Then go to another site and come back.  The counter is unchanged.  And if you come back tomorrow and nobody else has visited this page since you were last here, it still will not increment it.  But if others have been here, it will count your new visit.  So if anything, this counter will sometimes UNDERCOUNT visits to this site, but that is necessary to avoid OVERCOUNTING visits to this site.  So now you know...yippie!  You came here to read about Radio Controlled Sailplanes, and you are spending time reading my notes about counters?
