Haha, well, if I can get 4.2 billion views it might reset to 0! :)

Interesting note -- they block 'wget' based on user-agent, so if you wan to use wget you have to change it by doing -U "anything". :)

So, I was trying to track down why programs were lacking up whenever I went to my home directory. "Maybe I'll just look for an odd file, like a broken pipe", I thought:

Oops.. I guess I got mine. :)

<edit> How long does it take to delete 14,647 copies of Kaleeko's Web page, you ask?

I'm surprised it doesn't cap how many times it counts a view from the same IP in a certain time period.

Since views don't mean anything, I doubt it cares.

It is kinda weird and suspicious if someone has a billion views and one comment.

Yeah, that's a bit weird. :P But, since pageviews don't really mean anything, I'm not sure if dA would flip out over someone using a bot to give views, but it does look really suspicious.. Especially when all my other drawings only have about 50-100 views each. ;)

Since it probably helps their statistics and gains them ad revenue, I doubt they care too much.
