4 weeks, 23 bots



Again, playing catchup, here's the high points of the last 23 bots that dropped in:
  • Apparently someone doubted our HTML skills and felt the need to run us through a CSE HTML Validator Professional utility. Actually, this was probably just one of us, and nobody wanted to own up to it.   related...
  • FeedChecker/0.01 checked out some RSS feeds on one of our contributor's sites. Note to self: maybe we should get RSS on this site soon...   related...
  • iVia Page Fetcher viewed some pages from us - from the looks of the IP, they were using their actual bot and not their page download utility. You can read more about it on their site at http://ivia.ucr.edu/useragents.shtml   related...
This kicks October off with 44,822 user agents and 552 bots
