I looked for a long time before I found a counter that allowed me to count
hits for multiple pages without displaying the count on each page. (It
keeps a count for each page and then displays all of them on a single
counter page.) I installed one about 3 weeks ago on a lightly trafficked
site and have had no problems.

Three caveats - first, I'm running it on 3.51 SP5, second I'm *not* running
IIS, I'm running Purveyor, and third, this is a lightly trafficked site.
