I've used Site Meter almost since I began this blog in 2006. It has been great for gauging the flow of visitors and discovering what they find interesting here. This week, however, the database containing my Site Meter data has apparently disappeared. When folks tried to log on to this site, many would get a pop up screen advising them to log on to Site Meter. You could cancel the pop up, but if you tried to comment, it would come back.
I may reinstall Site Meter later, but for now, I'm tired of dealing with its inoperability. I removed it, and now you can comment again.
