5 May 2009 - Another server move
Another server move is now over, there is a few things that need to be fixed. Apparently there is no ISP/webhotels in Denmark that can handle traffic, this time is was Surftown Erhverv that gave up. I think I have tried most providers in Denmark by now. :) This time I have chosen a VPS solution hosted in the UK. I hope they can manage the traffic. Let me now if you find issues.
 
24 May 2008 - Router congestion
Yesterday around 1300 a router went down with congestion problems. We are waiting for an update to the router, but are now routing traffic bac into the router.
 
23 May 2007 - New server
We encountered a power outage during a snow storm which destroyed a server. Statcount is now running from a new server. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
 
14 May 2005 - We are counting again...
We are counting again
 
14 May 2005 - Temporarily not counting
Statcount does not count hits at the moment, because of a bandwidth outage. One user is sending more than 50 hits/second, and there is not enought bandwidth for that.
We presume we will start counting again tonight.
 
30 May 2005 - W3C firendly counter code
The html code for the counter does now comply with the W3C standard. That means that the counter will look the same, in all browsers supporting W3C. Please update the html counter code on your page.
 
6 June 2005 - New engine and new features
The counter engine has been upgraded with a brand new version, that can manage the growing load on the server.
As a new feature, we a now logging the country, from which the user is surfing. The lookup is made from the users ip address.
If you in the future receive less hits than usual, is it because the new counter engine is more restrictive defining unique hits.
 
25 June 2004 - Report dead counters
There is a lot of counters in the database, where the user has typed wrong url for the home page or the webpage does not exist anymore. To get rid of all these counters, you can report dead counters while surfing StatCount.
Click on the icon, check the information and hit the yes button.
The counters can then be removed from the database.
If you know you have a wrong/old URL on your counter, then it is maybe time to update it now, unless you don't need you counter! :)
 
3 March 2004 - Powerfailure
Today we lost a few counters. We had a sudden powerfailure, that resulted in MySQL eating up a few counters. Most of the lost counters was read from a 14 days old backup. All those counters will have 14 days old "all hits" values. :(

A few counters created in the period from 14/6-2004 to 3/7-2004 is lost!!! So if your counter does not show up, please email me lostcounter@statcount.com the id, countervalue and the emailaddress, then I will recreate the counter.

If you don not know your counter id, you can find it in your html code:
http://www.statcount.com/count.asp?id=1

Here is the id 1.

I am sorry for the inconvenience it might have caused!

Best regards...
