Can I have a recommendation as to where I can get a free web page counter from. I used to use a good one from Bravenet but they have downgraded the free service. Their free version is now of limited use to me and I'll be blowed (or words to that effect)if I I'll take out a subscription for what used to be free.
You were obviously very happy with the services provided by bravenet. If they are asking for a small subscription charge to help cover their costs, what's the problem..... This is a materialistic world where nothing is free.... If you are happy with their services I would recommend you continue to use them & pay the small subscription charge for the product. There may come a time when bravenet can no longer exist due to lack of funding, the alternatives may end up leaving a bitter taste in your mouth.
