Everything you need to know about using these counters is explained very
well by the Count
home page and DigitMania. There is
no point in my trying to replicate that here!
Basic requirements, however, are that you have an account on a web server
where you have access to run CGI programs. You also need a shell account on
the machine to compile the software (Count), or you need a more or less
identical system on which to compile it before ftp'ing it all over to the
Another scenario may be that your ISP or your system administrator already
has Count installed and you merely want an extra digit style that isn't yet
available. Then you need to ask them nicely (and bribe them with beer or
pizza if necessary) to install the additional style for you.
The former method is far more technically difficult, however your beer and
pizza budgets may be an inhibiting factor in the second.
Good luck! ...and please don't ask me for help if you have problems -- I
have massive problems answering all the e-mail I get already and ... as far
as Count is concerned ... I'm just a user of the product like you!
