He was talking about using a tracking system. They usually tell you how many hits you have,where they came from, screen resolutions, uniques and reloads,ect..I use extreme tracking which gives you all the details about a visitor,but i don't really like how i have to have their logo on my webpages.

And for Chris,
Most of my visitors have 800x600 too.But it seemes to really piss off visitors when they have to scroll to the right to read the whole page. My old design was like that and when i did a survey to my mailing list,that was my main problem.

Something to consider

Wes
