ASP Session Counter
There are many ways to track usage of a website.  The simplest way is with a hit counter.  However, a hit counter will not give you an estimate of how many unique user sessions were opened in your site.  The code provided below is one of the simplest session counters that can be made in .asp.  A text document (session_count.txt) is placed in the same directory (providing that directory has write access, you may need to place the .txt document in your cgi-bin depending on your provider) as the page we want the session counter to appear on.  The .txt file is first read to gain the value of the last session count, one is added to that number, written to the .txt document, closed and the counter value is written as text to the page.  Refreshing the content of the output page will continually display the last session number.  In order for the number to increment you must close all of your current browser sessions and re-visit the page or open another browser.
