The last time I checked, there was apparently no referrer information, but
perhaps I wasn't carefully enough to spot it.
I have just tried to open the monthly log file in order to provide you with
an answer. Little did I realise it was around 110 MB so the RAM and text
editor could not handle it (last time I looked at such logs was last year
when they were much, much smaller). Looking at my daily log file, I can't
pull out enough information. This has become really frustrating... *sign*
why did I not stick to lowercase from day one?
