The hit counter has been removed. If you believe that it will tell you how many times the documents have been accessed, you are mistaken. No counter can keep track of accesses from browser caches or proxy caches. Some counters depend on image-loading to increment; such counters ignore accesses from textmode browsers, or browsers with image-loading off, or from users who interrupted the transfer. Some counters even require access to a remote site, which may be down or overloaded, causing a delay in displaying the documents. Most web servers log accesses to documents stored on the server machine. These logs may be processed to gain information about the *relative* number of accesses over an extended period. There is no reason to display this number since there is no reference point to relate this number to. However, if you feel you need to know, at time of removal, the hit counters were approximately: 66547, 13575, 75776, 39250, 125859.
