Not many trick-or-treaters out on Halloween last night. A few but not nearly as many as years past. No doubt a lot of people chose not to go out because of the latest warning of possible new attacks from Islamic terrorists. It’s beginning to look like bin Laden’s holy war against civilization is going to cost the free world a lot of lives, time and money to clean up.
There are some problems around that weren’t caused by Islamic terrorists though: anybody notice that older versions of Webalizer died in October? Versions prior to 2.01 have a bug that prevents them from processing log entries dated after Oct 4, 2001. We have a couple of web servers running the old version and noticed this morning that the October stats were screwed up. The solution is to either upgrade to the current version of Webalizer or apply a simple patch and recompile.
