JavaScript tracking punks given a thrashing by good old-fashioned server log analytics

Nick Kew

Serverside analytics have been around forever. If asked for an analysis tool twentysomething years ago my first suggestion would've been Perl, and it's still a good answer today. People make it difficult for themselves because they can't (or won't) grasp HTTP's statelessness, and go to ever more absurd and futile lengths to fight against it.
