Added Three Articles About Creating Hitcounters for your ASP Site

Due to popular demand, I decided to create a few Howtos / tutorials describing the implementation of a hitcounter in ASP pages that tracks the number of visitors to your site.
The first article will describe the general concepts of the hitcounter. It shows you how to use the global.asa file to track the number of visitors your site gets. The other two articles build on this concept, but store the value for the counter in a text file and in the database, respectively. This way, the value for the counter is preserved when your web server restarts, either unexpectedly, or on purpose. Here are the links to the articles:

Howto Create a Hitcounter Using a Database

Have fun with them......
