It has annoyed me ever since I posted my paper Evidence of influences on John Kennedy Toole's "A Confederacy of Dunces," including Geoffrey Chaucer that I could not count how many users downloaded the PDF from my university's website. I didn't have access to the data. In the meantime, I have an account on Researchgate, and it has been bugging me to upload papers. It also tracks how many times they are "read" or downloaded. Perfect. Also, if Winona State ever cut off my ability to host web content, the paper would still be available, and Google Scholar links to Researchgate copies of papers. So here is the new link to the paper: Evidence of influences on John Kennedy Toole's "A Confederacy of Dunces," including Geoffrey Chaucer (2.0). As soon as Google Scholar links to it, I think I will take down the copy that is on my own university website.
