  1. The real way to count them would be to set the default page to blank on all the web browsers by default and let the users do what they want.

    For example, my friend has AOL dial-up, but the problem is that I do not need any of the junk that comes along with it. I just need the connection so that I can telnet. However, every time I connect, I am sure it opens at least three windows with all AOL sites in it. This gets counted by default.

  2. IT guy, I understand this to be looking at unique visitors, so your friend would only count once for the entire month. Maybe I’m misunderstanding, but that’s what it appears to me.

    m$ was #3?!? How many people didn’t update their computers? If more people are hitting Yahoo than m$, then there are a lot of folks who ought to switch to Macs, because mainenance is obviously not something they’re doing. (I know Macs aren’t maintenance free, but they’re a whole lot closer than windoze.) Perhaps a banner ad at Yahoo saying, “Tired of computer maintenance, leave the dark side behind, get a Mac!”
