AOL At Your Service...Or Not

Okay, guys...what gives with the hit counter?  At random intervals since the first of the year, my hit counter has zeroed out.  This last cycle, I had made it all the way up to over 600 hits before it bottomed out again.  I know you're reading, little AOL gremlins...is there something you could do to iron out this wrinkle in the fabric of my journal experience?  After all, you did manage to increase the amount I pay per month for this service that you give away free to AIM accounts... 

I'm sure it's a pipe-dream to imagine that the powers-that-be at AOL could ever dig up and return to me the actual hit count for "Coming to Terms..." which I would think would be well over twenty thousand by now...

Still, I would like newcomers to believe I've received more than 25 hits in almost three years...  How about it, AOL?

  6. Why is it that other hit counter programs work? I was so p.o.ed when mine bit the dust, I just got rid of it.
