Can't be brand-new. I've got it flagged as "google.co.uk". Maybe I should start putting a date on this stuff. Saves detour to raw logs

Oh, that's odd. I've got the exact IP 188.8.131.52 and it isn't a British query at all. Both are Google Translate-- one without referer, the other citing translate.google.com.mx (The requests themselves are unimpeachable; it's my most common translation by far.)

Huh. Wonder where I got google.co.uk from? Now it just says google.
Funny you should mention Brazil, because only yesterday (really) I was visited by something calling itself the googlebot. Didn't bother to look up the exact IP, but it came from LACNIC territory. Truism: A Ukrainian robot doesn't necessarily have to come from the Ukraine.
