While it used to be occasional, it seems SiteMeter is on the fritz constantly anymore. It repeatedly tells me that I haven’t had any visitors in the past 20 minutes, which would be more plausible if I weren’t getting e-mails and TrackBack pings during that same temporal span. Then, as if by magic, my count jumps up the next time I check it.
While I’m at it, their banner ad always seems to feature a not-very-appealing blonde girl, who’s reportedly domiciled in Virginia (is this a coincidence?) and claiming to be my dream girl. While I’m willing to concede that the photo on display might not be representative, the fact that she’s looking for a fellow anywhere from fifteen to two years my junior is also troubling. Perhaps she’d be more suitable for the Nigerian fellow whose business ventures I keep getting?
