Andy - I just added a customized version to CHAITGEAR, so you should be
seeing hits. Looks like it's working. When I upgrade to 1.5, I'll be able
to use the raw plugin, but I had to add some hackery for my CG codebase. ;)
I'm just removing the display: line, to see if that makes a difference.
Also, I'm urlencoding the botdURL -- lemme know how that comes through.
You should see a good 1000 or so a day coming from me.
Also, talking about scalability, you may want to go to a single-pixel image
(the http headers become the bandwidth), and may want to try something
faster than apache (lighttpd or one of those).
Glad to see someone starting a raw WP counter!
