Strange coincidence... I've just installed this on one of my drupal 
sites (babylonleaf.com). At the moment it runs on a different domain, 
and I have a module enabled to simply call the appropriate file from 
ShortStat (inc.stats.php) to do the logging. Its a very nice stats 
script, especially for those customers/clients who find scripts like 
Webalizer, Urchin, Analog, AWStats etc either too confusing or just 
plain overkill.

Incidentally, the link to stats.babylonleaf.com on the front page of 
www.babylonleaf.com seems to redirect back to the index page of the 
drupal site. Its strange, as I assumed it would be drupal's .htaccess 
playing up, but cut-n-paste 'stats.babylonleaf.com' into a browser and 
you get the ShortStat page: something to do with the referrer then? Does 
Drupal pass links through a re-write function? Gah, but the HTML clearly 
has the correct <a> tag... me confoosed. Sorry, should post in a new thread.
