Finally gave in

... and installed AWStats on Tomorrowlands today. I try not to care about page statistics, but it is nice seeing who's visiting you and why.

In honor of the occasion (I literally haven't looked at webstats for years now), I'll swipe an idea from lupagreenwolf and share with you some of the weirdest web searches that brought strangers to my site last month*:

free billy joel in the middle of the night
Dude, he's not even in jail!

dragon union means
... not having to worry about getting fired.**

how to find out if dragons really exist or not

firee sex games

As a side note: I like awstats' options more than webalizer's, but installation was far more of a hassle. (I had to fix some directory permissions while troubleshooting. Never fun to track those bugs down.)

* I wasn't even on the first page of search results for any of these. Although Tomorrowlands has been Google's top link for six years running for "depressing poetry".

*** Alternate punchline: "They teach the mental students."
