Don't my new blog counters look pretty? And it certainly improves your geography, with only the city and the flag to identify where the visitor came from. Even some of the UK "cities" are rather obscure. Where is (and who is?) Eaton Scoton? Although we in Oxford are listed as Newbury, it seems to pick up villages just as well as towns.
The only snag at the moment, is that now I am in Kiev on a dial-up connection it takes a hell of time to load.
