I put up the counter on the blog again. I've done this three or four times and I always take it down eventually because, after a time, it loses its mind. How do I know this? Because it will suddenly reset itself to zero for no reason.
Today, for instance, when a momentary lapse in judgment prompted me to put it up again, I noticed that between the time I clicked the preference box and and the few seconds it took me to get back to this journal, the counter was already at 34.
So, I'll be leaving it up for a week or so, or until it craps out again or it does something else to annoy me. In case you're wondering.
