JavaScript tracking punks given a thrashing by good old-fashioned server log analytics

use all those log files generated on the web server itself. After all, unless you have more nefarious aims in mind, that information should be all developers need to keep things humming along.

I did that for ten years, then a dozen years ago Marketing decided they wanted prettier graphs so it was all dropped in favour of Google Analytics. If they came back to me now and said they wanted to go back to log files I'd laugh in their faces.
