After four days I finally got a response from the help folks at site meter. Here's what they say:
Hello, We are correcting a problem with the meter styles on s29. If you are using the dynamically updated counter style you may be experiencing issues with the counter not being visible on your page. We are continuing to track your statistics and no information has been lost. We will post more information at http://weblog.sitemeter.com/ once the problem has been corrected.
Thank you, Site Meter Team
I was really hoping that I could keep close enough track that I could identify the 100,000 visitor to my blog. Unless they fix it quickly that's not going to be possible, as I'm now above 99,000. So much for offering a prize to the 100,000 visitor!
So I guess I'm going to have to pick a post like everyone else has done and draw a name from everyone who comments. Of course I have to figure out what a good prize would be first. I'm on post 367 right now so I think the 400th post would be a good time. That gives me time to come up with a prize also!
In the meantime I'm way behind on blog reading - as usual. I hope everyone is having lots of quilty fun - I'll catch up one of these days!
