The Smallest Minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities. - Ayn Rand
Well, don't take it too seriously - remember that the only two mechanisms by which the web page can track unique users are IP address and cookies, and the former change with many of the more popular ISPs, and the latter are routinely reset by most net-savvy surfers with a paranoid streak.
(And keep in mind a libertarian blog is going to attract more than its share of the net-savvy-with-a-paranoid-streak.)
Yep. Not many cookies on this browser...
My browser is set to auto delete cookies when it's closed.
Also, crapcleaner is ran every time I close the browser.
I wouldn't put too much stock in that chart.
What's the time scale? One day? A week, a month, a year?
A little over 30 days, Mark.
I think Adrian has it right.
I gotta be at least one of the 325!
How many RSS readers do you have, now that you offer a full text feed?
I'll tell you the truth, while visiting your site to comment, I block
and a few other annoying things that make your page load slow. It's bad enough already with all the stuff you load from photobucket.
Oh, and I upchuck my cookies all the time too.
I'm going to do a "state of the blog" post soon over my place, on my hosting costs and the total bandwidth served.
I've been at my new host for about a year and I think I've spent less than $20, or $30 total if you add in the cost of my domain and the optional privacy services I buy.
Due to the internet service provider I go through, my IP changes every time I log on. So, I could hit your website 100 times a day, and you would register 100 different IP's.
But still either way, you get more readers than I do, so enjoy it.
My security settings delete all cookies everytime I close my browser, which I do several times a day, and I get a new IP address when I open my browser also. but I check in at least once or twice a day several times a week.
Adirian and subsequent commenters are correct: There are those who set their browers (Firefox in my case) to delete cookies upon closing; therefore, we will consistently show up as new visitors.
