I was thinking of you :)
“Matt, how about a "# times read" counter for each thread, next to the "# messages" counter? Other places I go have this feature and it can be useful.”
“spoiled ass!! LOL”
“I'll probably refrain from that just because I think it causes an abnormal sense of competition. Like when forums show how many posts people have submitted. Eventually, that just becomes a competition of who can get the highest post count. But that's just my opinion ...”
“I despise post counts! Especially for some who do nothing all day but post innane comments and then some wiseass questions what I...................I mean the person in question do all day and if I...................the person has a life.”

Worse yet, does your arse burn when one of your co-workers orders Mexican food for you?”
“do you know what REALLY burns my arse?
wait for it
wait for it
a flame about 3 feet high!”
“Matt, hadn't thought about a competition issue, but I can see your point. Your argument might be more relevant for a total-posts counter. I have seen that happen on other boards ("I'm about to hit 10,000, you only have 4,000, ha-ha!")
My request is about confirming that people around here really do read the trip reports, the gear threads, the environmental issues, etc. The stuff that relates to the reason for the board. At first glance you'd think most people come here for the politics or just flat-out for controversy, since they tend to get higher post counts. But if we could see the number of views/click-throughs, I'm betting the opposite would be apparent.”
“Personally I don't want the man all up in my clicks, yo!”
“Which man would that be?”
“You know...The Man, man! :-D”
“Well, lyra, every click you make right now, Matt can record and know exactly what threads you are visiting. If he wanted to add that code. Your handle/ID is sent along with the thread you are requesting, every time you click on a link here. Only way around that is to log off and wipe your cookies.”
“Did he just tell lyra to wipe her cookie?”
“I would like to see links to:
under "My Favorite Threads" on the Trail Talk home page.”
“matt, I need to blow my nose.
Would you hold my hanky? ;-)”
“dood, that's pretty f'd up.
lyra, don't take that sheet. tell that jerk you'll wipe your cookie when and where you choose.”
“Stick it to The Man!!!!”
“I'll tell you when and how to wipe your cookie and you'll like it, damit! When I say "wipe your cookie" you'll ask "how high?" When I tell you to "fetch your cookie" you'll ask "peanut butter or chocolate chip?"
“It’s not a cookie. It’s a Newton.”
“Don't you dare touch my cookies!”
“my cookies are clean cookies!”
“matt knows everything?...you mean Matt is Elvis?”
“matt is sarge”
“oh no, jimmy san said sarge...oh crap i just said it...that's twice...nobody say it a third time or he'll show up

“Here's another way Matt may soon be able to track your every move...
“A microwave breast scanner...how will that help him track me? Okay granted you mix the techical term of MICROWAVE with BREAST SCANNER..and there ain't a guy in the world who wouldn't spend 49.99 at Walmart to get one...but....”
“After he watches you with the monitor that doubles as a video camera, then he can heat up his cup of coffee in the breast-shaped microwave scanner.”
“Matt, I think I found a weird quirk in the new counter. I posted to a long-quiet thread (from 2005), and when it first appeared on the main page it had 2 views attributed to it.”
“OMG!!!!!!!!!! This is worse than the tsunami!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Run for your lives!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
“maybe someone else looked at the thread before you posted.”
“whats funny is that when I created the "post view mania" thread it was created with 1 post and 0 views.”
“Had your eyes closed?”
That is by design. Just because you post a thread doesn't mean you have read it.”
“So that explains some of the crap I see on here!”
“LMAO @ bitpusher!!”
“matt - possible but doubtful that someone else looked up that specific thread in the last 2 day. I wonder if it was a web crawler.”
“Matt, there is a link on the "message to New Orleans" thread that put something on my PC that keeps redirecting my browser whenever I'm on Trail Talk. I did not have this problem until I clicked on that link. Please delete that link.”
“Which link was it?”
“Here is the user and date and time stamp.
That was a TV Station news link.
I just looked at it again and did not have the problem conk is describing.

“All I know is that the problem occurred immediately after clicking on that link.”
“Maybe matt can delete the link?
It was just there to show the source anyway.
How are you posting if it keeps "redirecting my browser whenever I'm on Trail Talk".
(Not saying it isn't happening but just curious)

“I think he's pulling your chain, SS.
conk - if you're for real, its possible you have a "delayed payload" virus, and its due to someplace you visited a while ago.”
Here's the link in question by conk.
Anyone feeling brave other than me? ;-)”
“delayed payload virus is much better than a premature payload.”
