Has anyone seen this one?
Agent: Mozilla/4.5 [en] (Win95; I) Referral: (None)
The IP block belongs to Global Crossing (NET-GBLX-8).
That is an odd one. [ ...] is a mirror of looksmart. There is very little evidence history of activity coming from this IP. Did it act like a spider or human? fed.looksmart.com awoyo
These are the only two entries in my log file for this guy. He came in, hit my index page (at the time I was calling it index.cgi) and left. This is the only file I have that's close to this size, and I did some editing on it this week which probably accounts for the discrepancy in file size here in the log entries. My cloak log shows that he would have been fed the file from my visitors directory which is 11K, but that's far from the size shown here. I'll be waiting up for him around 23:30 tonight. :)

okay, this is pure speculation, but it looks like a link verification bot. Perhaps it is a (new?) bot LS uses to make sure it's directory is current? awoyo

I had the smae thoughts.
He came again last night. Only this time he took 26403 bytes and I don't have a file that size on the site. It looks like he's coming in, getting an "OK", and leaving.
