Unexpected impact

A while ago I posted a file in the main JOS area with a simple ASP/SVG generator in it. Today I go look at my stats and lo and behold, the file has been downloaded 1363 times.

I'll be damned.

Also, if you google for "ASP SVG graph generator", that thread is the first hit. (Do I detect some untapped demand here?)

Is there some way for me to find out how many of those downloads came from here? My ISP dont provide referer logs, just some simple stats.

If they don't provide referrer logs, and you didn't write code into your page, then no. Bad luck... But you never know - the volume signifies that there could be some interest...

No referrer logs whatsoever? Not even raw access logs you can analyze yourself?

Nope, just a stats page with some.. well stats. I think logs are extra. Its just some web space that came with my broadband that I use for temporary files.

Now, I'm kind of hesitant to delete it though.

I was thinking that fogbugs might be tracking referals and that a mod could see them?

I doubt it and I'm loathe to go digging around in someone else's space to find out.

I was just curious, so its no biggie. I just asked in case it was like really easy to see (like our IPs apparently are).
