New FAST spider? hmmmm? roscoepico msg:225109 2:17 pm on Jun 12, 2001 (gmt 0) Im seeing the following in my logs
Visitor IP: 188.8.131.52
UA: FAST-WebCrawler/2.2.6 (email@example.com; [ ...] ah-ha.com
Does anyone what what type of relationship FAST and AH-HA have? Should I be feeding them optimized pages for FAST?
Any help is appreciated

This has been an issue for me for over a year now. The databases are not at all in sink. It looks to me like they are independent of each other, but there is a possibility that Fast will do a uni-directional data dump -- or even some cross referencing.
