I stumbled on a lot of strange referres across a lot of different domains hosted in different countries.

2001-08-01 22:46:50 - W3SVC72 WEB2 GET /default.ida NNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN
NNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN%u9090%u6858%ucbd3%u7801%u9090%u6858%ucbd3%u7801%u9090%u6858%ucbd3%u7801%u9090%u9090%u8190%u00c3%u0003%u8b00%u531b%u53ff%u0078%u0000%u00=a 200 0 165 4039 280 80 HTTP/1.0 - - -

Sometimes all the N's are X's.
It seems ok, but what page are they grabbing? I'm not getting any errors, but what is going on?

On one site the traffic exploded from 300 uniques a day to +4.000! :)

I bow and scrape, and I'm really embarrassed and sorry for not checking the site search.
Thanks for clearing :)

I got out of bed way too early today
