|Book 'em Dan-O is an access logging script which was written by Spider. He explains, "Let's face it, most of the statistics you get from server logs are full of irrelevant garbage. Book 'em, Dan-O is a readily configurable, easy way to log the time of the visit, the visitor, where they came from (when used as a SSI), and what browser they were using. All great data to better refine your site!
Dan-o is configurable as a Server Side Include or as a "re-direct," and includes ability to exclude yourself from being logged. (Assuming you have a static IP address - the next revision may allow you to exclude folks from just your domain if you're dynamically addressed.)
There are several downloading options available below and more information on this script can be found in the Readme file.

You should read these through and keep them by you when setting up or installing any MSA script. It is probably not a bad idea to print them out. Each compressed script package contains a plain text version of the Readme file, however the links below will take you to their HTML counterparts.
