Robots.txt does not support wildcards, so *.gif$ will be ignored.

that's for Google, which does support wildcards

sort of a double protection against google images to go with the disallow for the image bot above.

Oh. Well, in that case look ok.
Check out WebmasterWorld robots.txt in case you fancy banning a few more!

thanks for your time and feedback.

I was worried about the ordering of the commands really.

I am hitting back big against bad bots and spammers on my site this week. Using .htaccess more than robots.txt but it all helps.

thanks again...
