So, Sitemeter apparently has decided to stop working, without even letting me know. So I installed StatCounter, another free counter. That's why you see the different format at the end of the page. It's not quite as large, but it will work. The only problem is that I had to enter a number to start the counter, & since I do have a bit of an ego, I know I'm a troubled Zen guy, I want to know how many people come & read the blog. Anyway, I picked 24,000 to start. I was somewhere over this number, but that's how it goes.
