ATtiny USB Web Site Hit Counter Project

How many hits does your web site have today? You just need to log onto to your stats system, drill into a few menus and voila there it is. This ATtiny USB Web Site Hit Counter Project by Bob Hobby makes it much easier than that, you can just have a look at the numbers on your own hit counter panel, if you are curious how traffic changed based on updates and time of day this would be a great way to keep an eye on things. It is based on the AVR ATtiny which communicates to a host computer to get updates. The host computer gets the updated stats from your web site which runs a tiny script to keep track of your hits. I can think of lots of fun things to add to the project such as adding a tiny beep for every 1000 visitors or flashing a strobe if you reach a new record for the day.
