I use and ISAPI filter called hitcount. Fast and plenty of options and
FREE. I haven't used Website in a while, but doesn't it support ISAPI. I
use iis.

The dll approach is by far the fastest it seems to me.

Haven't seen a multipurpose guestbook I would recommend. We use a basic
Cold Fusion script.

Hope this helps.
