I like UNAVAILABLE. It suggests that they were using an off-the-rack program to generate their robot's name, and the function they needed was unavailable so that's what got plugged into Slot B of the name :)
I'm narrower on java. It has to be Java/ like that. Probably because I accidentally locked out the wrong person.
Apache-HttpClient really? Quick detour to raw logs reveals a solid block of them from early July to early September last year, with a scant handful earlier. Maybe they sold their robots to a poorer country.

Apparently once a day for two solid months, and I never noticed because they were already blocked by IP.

Oh. Yahoo Cache System. Imagine that. Wonder how they got fixated on this file? It's so obscure, it doesn't even have a page to go with it, just a click-for-blowup link.
