Another day, another project started

Okay, I’m not that bad. I don’t start a new project every day, but when I do it’s usually because what’s available bugs the heck out of me.

This time around it’s web stats. I know the “modern way” is through Google Analytics or similar systems, but I’m something of a fan of static logfile analysis. A good part of the reason is that the data is mine — I can verify what I see and weed more data out of the noise at any time in the future, not just when I upgrade the JavaScript or when someone has it enabled.

I know there’s a lot that I’m missing out on, too, but that will be the interesting part of the project — figuring out the things that will set my pet project apart from the others.
