Resume View Tracker from 2010

Back in 2010 or so when I was looking for work. I wanted to track when recipients were looking at my portfolio, so I added some code to alert me whenever the page was loaded, by anyone.

It seems more innocent than sinister to me now. Note how I had to alter it to filter out web spiders:

$spiders = array(

And I also had to filter out friends and family I sent the page to to get their feedback, and me when I was at their places.

It’s no longer working code because PHP has added changes to eliminate global variables that are not scoped to the $_SERVER variable. But it’s a fun time capsule.
