For the first time in a long while, I actually worked out today. It is amazing how quickly I felt the effects as I was working out. I am certain I will be sore tomorrow, but it is all good. :)

As you can probably tell, I have added a counter to the site. In its current state, it is pretty simplistic; every time you refresh the page will count as a hit. All I had to do was fiddle with permissions for the counter file to get it to work, since I had already written the script several days ago. I'll spend some time and adapt the script to handle multiple counters and also disallow refreshes as counting toward the totals.

Although it may seem trivial, the counter is the first step in creating many wonderous marvels here. :-D It makes use of reading and writing to a file, and knowing how to do that opens a world of possibilities. For instance, I have noticed that Blogger is becoming busier; I had a hard time actually logging onto the site to post this because of the heavy traffic. Thus, it may be possible to replace Blogger with my own Blog script. I'll probably start by replacing the html-gear I have with my own guestbook script and poll script, although you can feel free to continue to create and post any polls you want from html-gear.

I love PHP. :-D
