They are coming from a known class C but the name is intriguing. Anyone care to speculate?

Could it be to build an Australian database?

Do you also see boobook.idp.inktomi.com in the logs?

If it's paranoid week the boobook owl is a nocturnal hunter.

No.

Paranoid, me?

It is coming in with a very typical Slurp patter, over many of my domains so I am not worried too much. What are they going to do, take away the remaining 5-10% of my Ink traffic?

lol

I first saw that spider on June 17/2000, it has spidered a couple of times since then. Nothing atrocious happened to the site, but shortly afterward the "cat" Inktomi spider started showing up. I assumed it was related.

I've seen that one here and there for a very long time. I'm not going to dig, but I'd say close to a year.
