Despite being wildly inaccurate and not representative of actual pageviews, it's still worthwhile noting that ANN's graphical counter recently crossed the 3-million mark. Meanwhile, my server logs indicate that about 12,500 pages are displayed every day, to over 40,000 distinct hosts this month. Since ANN went dynamic in 1998, over 4500 items and over 58,000 comments have been posted.
In mostly unrelated news, I had to adopt the flat view of the comments script to only serve ten pages at a time. With individual items getting up to 500 comments at times, this was a necessary step to maintain tolerable loading times.
