Just glanced at this month's Reso readership figures so far. See we've had fuck all hits - only 30-odd since the issue went live on Monday. Panic, thinking that practically no one cares any more. Realise I forgot to include the statcounter code in the latest issue, so it's only counting people reading back-issues. Bang head on table.
So April stats will be buggered. Shit.

On the plus side, you'll be buggered by only one day. That's relatively little in the grand scheme of things. Get used to this happening regularly, because it almost certainly will. Thus is the nature of the WWW.

Three days, more like. Five if you count the time it's been available to subscribers. It's annoying 'cause I'm trying to keep an accurate stats log to measure our growth, and a substantial portion of our monthly readership logs on in the first couple of days after release. We usually have a good 300 readers in the first few days, then another thousand or so across the course of the month (yes, low figures still. Boo!) so April's figures aren't going to look impressive at all.
No enormous problem, just a little frustrating.
