Being ever helpful and wanting to help the hard pressed Ninja out I'll start a "Top Ten" frequently asked questions and answers kinda thread on here to relieve the pent up pressure the potential young thrusters have in getting answers and getting answers NOW! If anyone want to muck in and help out I'm sure Ninja will appreciate it.

BCO... When I was running events our website had a bit of kit that showed where people who visited it were from, quite useful if you are putting a show on in say Liverpool but all your hits are coming from Edinburgh, gives you an indication that the advertising is being targeted in the wrong area.
What I found interesting was how world wide the hits were, you could see people had visited from antarctica, Oz, Israel etc. Useless for visitor numbers through the gates but showed there's bored people all over the world just surfing the net.
