188.8.131.52/20 Microsoft. Didn't they just add a new range the week before last? Now here they are again with still another.
Yes, it's really only .16.0/20. I checked. 184.108.40.206/20 is Sara Lee. And as long as I was there, I looked up other recent visitors from the neighborhood. 220.127.116.11/22 is StumbleUpon; 18.104.22.168/22 is DomainTools.
199 is going to be another of those abominable ranges like 91 or 193 where you never know what's in the /22 next door. I am not looking forward to v6-thingie at all. There will be :: business with calculator :: 65536 times as many of them. :(

Don't know what MS's long-term plan for this, uhm, rangette is. But the latest batch of logs had them trying it out on msnbot-media. I was alerted by the huge number of requests for robots.txt from an unaccustomed quarter.

bingbot and msnbot don't get the huge number of spoofers that googlebot does, but it's enough that I can't just wave in anyone who flashes a Bingbot ID. Well, I could. This isn't my day job. But I don't feel like it.
