Time to switch monitoring tools, and adopting Free Software all the way. So far, as declared in the information pages, I have used Google Analytics to collect some stats on the usage. Not anymore. Now I am using Piwik, a Free Software replacement that does its job easily and cleanly.
Google Analytics has gone through a series of data protection enquiries although so far I have no news that any authority has unquestionably found its use against the law.
More than enough reasons to switch. Then I have found this interesting project, the above mentioned Piwik, which is based on Free Software development, released under the GPL and that installs on my own machine. It was no brainer, I have installed it, it was up in less than five minutes, zero effort. It is I who read all the data, and I will continue doing it with moderation. If you don’t trust my word, trust my laziness.
