Toss Your Cookies

It has come to my attention that WaiterRant’s site statistics are less than transparent. To remedy that situation I have decided to make those statistics public. Click on the StatCounter “counter.” Type “reader” into both the username and password fields and your in!

My reasons for doing this are as follows:

1. Many blogs have easily readable site statistics. Why not mine?

2. I want to give a big shout out to the team at StatCounter for making, what I think, is a superior product.

3. Many people link to WaiterRant and I can’t always reciprocate in kind. However, with StatCounter, if you go to the “Came From” page you can see all the great blogs that have referred to me. Please visit them in return.

If any one cares – my counter is set to record a unique visitor at 6 hour intervals. That means you can come to WaiterRant a hundred times in a day but the software will only register you as a unique visitor four times. Interesting huh? Yawn!

If anyone knows how to go straight to the site stats without typing in a password and user name let me know! I am a newbie with this stuff so bear with me!

Pray for me. Mother’s Day is coming.

    Check back with in 10 days. They are relaunching their stats service then. I’ve used them in the past and they blow away anything I’ve seen. Can’t wait to see what the new version will be like.

    I used to work for a place that OPENED FOR THE SEASON on Mother’s Day!! What a nightmare.
    Fortunately I now waittress at a place that is closed on Sundays and all major holidays.
    Our wedding anniversary falls on Mother’s Day occassionally and I ABSOLUTELY REFUSE to eat out then. You can’t possibly get quality service when the establishment is that overwhelmed.

    Husbands, GET A CLUE!! Cook your wife a nice dinner(or whatever you’re capable of) and spare her the ordeal of fighting massive yuppy crowds on Mother’s Day.

    My husband and my Dad will be BBQing my Mom and I a lovely smoked turkey for Mother’s Day!

    Well, I link you, though you don’t know me, because I think you are paralytically funny and I love it. But, you don’t have to link me, unless you like me.


    I use StatCounter, too and they are great!

    I use Statcounter myself for the lovely amount of data it gathers. There is, sadly, no way to have non-members check your stats. Your solution is the best one. There are quite a few statcounters on Check the left column, second from the top (says “Gratis website statistieken”) for free statcounters. One of them must be good and transparent.

    I just may be a clueless throwback redneck: I cannot log into the counter thingy and view its awesome stature.

    I’m clickin’ the counter gif, I’m logging in (reader/reader) and SC barks back that I’ve hosed the password or account; standard routine.

    Hints? Anyone wanna whack me with the cluestick?

    – b..

    I too am clicking the counter gif and logging in (reader/reader) and SC barks back that I’ve got an incorrect password or account.

    Could someone have changed your password?
