Our End-Of-Year Fundraising drive is in progress. If you haven't contributed to the operation of the MMD in the last 12 months, this would be a great time to contribute. There's a PayPal link at the bottom of each page on the website.

If you aren't sure when you last contributed, please send me a note using the contact form at the bottom of this page and I'll look you up in my records.

Thank you for your generous support!

P.S. While your support is needed and appreciated, you do not need to contribute to be a subscriber. If you have subscribed and aren't receiving your Digest, please use the contact form at the bottom of the page and let me know. Thanks!

Web Site Activity Counters
By Matthew Caulfield

What does a web site counter like those offered by count?
If the counter is placed on a specific web page out of several on a
site, does it count only hits on that specific page or hits on any page
of the site?

Matthew Caulfield

 [ Most of these counters count the number of times the counter is
 [ displayed.  If the counter's web site places a cookie on the user's
 [ machine, it is possible for the counter to indicate something more
 [ useful by not incrementing if the same visitor redisplays that page
 [ within a specified period of time, such as an hour or a day).  In
 [ particular, these counters must be incorporated into every page that
 [ is to be measured.  Some counter sites provide for "invisible"
 [ counters, but they still must be accessed and this can slow down
 [ access to every page.  -- Jody
