Hi Erik, not wanting to flood the list (it seems there is much traffic
I am working on a web tracking system, so "something" and "something else"
are of
the form:
arguments =
"?first_arg="+top.location.href+"&second_one="+document.referrer+"etc.." ;

then I call
im = new image(1,1);
im.src = "http://domainname.com/script"+arguments ;

so that the web server logs the whole line, which gives more infos than
those sent along with a GET http request.

the logs files of the web server will then be processed by batch programs,
which will separate the relevant bits of information for doing statistics.

thank you, have a nice day.
