An excellent use for a visitor count?

Visitor counters are oversold. Very much oversold. I don't give a *&^%$ when I go down to my local supermarket whether I'm visitor number 27 or visitor 2765, so why should I want to know on a web site?

Well - you may not be interested in how many visitors I've had to my "Save the train" website that's trying to raise the profile of the Swindon to Southampton train service that's being scrapped in December, but I tell you ... I AM interested in getting visitors to read about it. And I'm keeping tabs of the number of different remote hosts who've accessed us .... I've got a target of ten thousand for the first year which ends in 10 days time. I'm within a few hundred but it's going to be close.

I would much appreciate you clicking through - I'll give you the link again - it's
http://www.savethetrain.org.uk

If we succeed, then come down to Melksham by train after the 9th of December, let me know, and I'll come down to the station here with a steaming cup of coffee. Black or white? one lump or two??

Thanks!
