I'm not sure that this is the right forum for my problem, but it's related.
I have one of those free web spaces for my internet pages (actually, yahoo's geocities). One of the services that yahoo provides is that I can check how many times each one of my pages has been accessed. Usually it works with no problem. However, someone whom I know told me that she accessed a certain one of my pages, but when I checked to see how many times the page had been accessed, according to yahoo, the page had never been accessed (page was accessed 0 times). So I told her to try it again. She accessed the page again and still, according to yahoo, the page had never been accessed. I have no doubt that she accessed the page. So I wonder, is she using some kind of strange browser that can access a page without leaving any record of accessing? Or is there some setting in a normal browser that one can use to access a page without leaving any record of it?

I think the more logical explanation is that the problem lies with geocities.
