Who's got the right stats?

So I've been running a little competition between Google Analytics and Feedburner's Site Stats functionality to see who reports the better stats on my blog.

The stats are relatively similar, but yesterday showed a difference of 5 visits (which for my teeny readership) is quite a difference. I guess to really work it out who's the most accurate, I need to go trawl the apache logs to see what's really hitting the domain.

I suppose if one or the other sites tracking javascript is too slow to load, they might miss the 'hit', whereas at least the Apache logs are faithful to the end, tho pretty ugly to read :) And for free tracking services, they do both offer a lot of value.
