This week's book giveaway is in the Mac OS forum. We're giving away four copies of a choice of "Take Control of Upgrading to Yosemite" or "Take Control of Automating Your Mac" and have Joe Kissell on-line! See this thread for details.
JavaRanch used to have a little visitor counter at the bottom. I always found it interesting to see how many visitors were coming here, and how the trend would go through the week and on weekends. But I noticed that the counter has disappeared?
Is there an anti-counter conspiracy going on at the JavaRanch? I did like the counter.
We've been using the Google visitor-counting thingy instead. Whereas the old service required a visible image on each page to work, the Google thing does not. I am not sure if the current counter information is/can be made public, but I'll check for you.
If I remember correctly, the old counter also caused some minor problems with some kinds of browsers, didn't it?

I don't know about problems, but the reporting logic was stuck in 2004 or so. E.g., it didn't know about Firefox, IE 7, Windows Vista, or any other browser or OS released in the last few years.

I upload the quarterly report each quarter for publishers to look at. You can view the access stats pdf online.
You know, that fact could be interpreted as "only Americans need more help with Java than Indians"
That's so nice of you Ulf A different interpretation. But i did really take it up in a sense that most of the Indians are spending their time useful to improve themselves! Wassay? [ June 25, 2008: Message edited by: Raghavan Muthu ]

Yes, my sense of humor is feared widely across the land...
But my point really was that it's just about impossible to draw meaningful cross-country conclusions from this data in the absence of lots of other information.
By the way, I think you mean improve, not improvise. That means ... something different.
