Hi George. It usually means they have you bookmarked or just typed in you URL. If you advertise in Usenet it could be from there as well.

One more thing, many stats programs use JavaScript to check referrers. If the person is using and old broweser or has a new one with JavaScript turned off, it may log as a "no referer"
