For several years I used BAStats on my blog to get visitor statistics. It gave me nifty info like which Google searches lead people to my blog. After a a few years, my blog pages started loading very slowly, annoyingly slow, and I finally tracked it down to BAStats (using MySQL’s “show processlist” command). The BAStats tables were getting pretty big (hundreds of thousands of rows), and when I disabled BAStats, my blog sped up dramatically. So now it’s gone for good, and I’m using Google Analytics instead.
So long BAStats, and thanks for all the fish.
