top downloads of the week

I wrote a new page that (hopefully) will provide a nice report on the top downloads over the past 7 days.<br /><br />As Textkit's online contentgrows, it becomes harder and harder for visitors to find out what's currently 'hot' by looking at the homepage all time top downloads reports because the files on that report have a time advantage. <br /><br />This page should help:<br /><br />http://www.textkit.com/top-downloads.php<br /><br />Test it out..
