for my own site tracking, i set a cookie that expires once per day, 
so i get each visitor logged only once per day...

for my splash page, i do it once per month 
(http://evolt.org/index.cfm?menu=8&cid=416)...   this also applies 
to my screen res tracking 

not the most efficient way, perhaps, but it does the job...
