|Welcome to WebmasterWorld, this place is gold.|
Yep, it is a crawler sent by M$ to find out what server platform you use. http://browserwatch.internet.com/news/story/news-980112-9.html

A remote server query shows tide70.microsoft.com to be running Apache/1.3.6 (Unix)PHP/4.04 and it's been running 123 consecutive days without rebooting.

That is funny Tool! Looks like you caught them, and they took down the web server. There is still evidence that they are running a *nix box. 6000/tcp is open, which is used for X11 applications.

Probably due to outsourcing. Half the staff is working on "patches" and the rest is covering for the legal battle. :)

Found something on this on browserwatch [browserwatch.internet.com]
claiming it is "someone at MS wants to find out
their REAL marketshare" on usage of their webserver.

Anything new on this BunnySlippers?
I'm catching it in the log files again.
188.8.131.52 at 01:30:54 grabbed the root index page.
184.108.40.206 at 01:30:55 grabbed one sub-page linked off the root index page.
That's a fast human if it is one.
