Not quite ready for prime time

Google Visitoris a neat idea (thanks again to Woody of Woody's News & Views). Maybe not quite ready for prime time, though.

I signed up for the freebie. Waited a couple hours. Went back and checked, and sure enough, it had recorded and mapped some of the visitors to this blog. I could CLICk on the Satellite link and view a low-rez pic (or map) of whence the visitor had come.

Of course, when I checked, in the same time frame Statcounter had noted the IP addresses of 10.5 times as many unique visitors... EDIT: akk. My math is hampered something fierce when I'm coffee-deprived (well, that's my story and I'm sticking to it). True numbers fro m statcounter showed nearly 15X as many unique visitors in the same time frame. See comments.

So, neat idea, but not as neat as GoogleEarth. (WARNING! The link is to the latest setup file for the standalone application, GoogleEarth, which, even in the free version, is MUCh more capable than a Google map/satellite search on the web. SO, if you want to try it out—Windows only—RIGHT-CLICK the link and Save As... the n scan it with your anti-virus software, etc.)
