Counterize II & Fire Stats

I just uninstalled Counterize II [1] and FireStats [2] from this site and I will track the hits via DreamHost Stats panel.

The reason being FireStats is taking too much database space. My whole database (without gzip) is about 35MB and now it is backed to 3.2MB, notice the great difference?

So I went to try out Counterize II hoping that it will be smaller, as it says on the website it has a new database structure which saves on the space, but after installing it, my sql queries went from 41 queries per page to 60+ queries per page.

I ended up not using both.
