Title: "Shown 1 Total 2" - whats that about?

Floating in the bottom left of the window. There are floaty pointers up the side by the scrollbar too. What are they?

I have temporally added one of my own web projects to slinging.org.  You can learn more about the technology here:  http://www.inhabitedweb.com/

Youtube video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZhtmURwTTkA

Basically, those little blue arrows are other users.  You are the red one.   You can see where other people are surfing on the page (like what post they are reading).

It looks kind of interesting... is there any way to search where on the site has the most traffic?

Hmm, I'm guessing that the most traffic will be where the most triangles are and not the most triangles because it's the most interesting thing on the page.
Be interesting to see the results and if there's any way of seeing whether the markers cause traffic or just monitor it. I'm guessing if it catches on google will be knocking at your door in short order chris. Very useful tool for pointing people At the aspects of a site the great satan wants you to see.
And they tend to offer very very large cheques.

still at least i know what it is - just thought it was something weird attached to the admin rights :-) And I hadn't spotted the triangles at all - dark red on a black background - not the most visible colour scheme lol

I have another question. Do the arrows point to where the top of people's scroll bars are located?

Et Cetera - yes.  If you move your scroll bar, the red arrow (you) should align with the top of the scroll bar).

Is there a way to search the site for the most trafficked area?

They're funny little things...  Sometimes I get two red ones, does that mean I have a clone?  :o   ;D
