At the top of the mountain, where an attendant will take your $46 ticket, foot traffic is steady and cellphone reception is excellent. At the bottom of the same mountain, the town teems with pizzerias, tourists chatter in half a dozen languages and a school band director is herding his traditionally costumed students into formation. "Roki! Roki!" he seems to be hollering. And then, as darkness falls, his young trumpeters and drummers launch into the rousing theme from Sylvester Stallone's first hit movie.

No, Rob Blake said Tuesday, he hasn't made it known publicly or privately that he would like to play in Toronto, contrary to the report there. "You're going to hear stuff like that," he added. And no, Blake said, the lack of a contract for next season and the three-month drought in contract talks with the Kings aren't affecting his game. "I don't really have anything to prove," he said. "What I've done until now is going to decide that contract. So I'm not too worried about this season that way."

Theglobe.com wishes to clarify Joseph Menn's article "Web Firms May Vastly Inflate Claims of 'Hits' " [April 17], which, however unintentional, was misleading to readers. The article stated that DoubleClick did not agree to have its audience estimates be included in Theglobe.com's SEC filing. But Theglobe.com received documentation from DoubleClick in a letter dated April 8, 1999, granting Theglobe.com permission to use the name of its ad serving solution, DART, in Theglobe.com's SEC filings.

Google Inc. said it had developed a system that would let advertisers limit and measure the number of times users view ads on its partners' sites.

The technology will be available within months, Google said. The product comes out of Google's acquisition of online ad company DoubleClick Inc., bought in March to boost sales of promotions with pictures and videos.
