Inktomi no longer serving Hotbot?

Am I seeing things? Or did their name change?

Hotbot is supposed to be primarily Inktomi fed right? Well when I right-clicked on our Inktomi PFI'd link and look at the properties, it shows up with a yahoo! click tracking code instead of Ink! like this:

[rdre1.yahoo.com...]

I don't seem to recall this looking like this before.I know they bought them an all, but until now it seemed to me they still said inktomi.com in the code.
Anyone able to confirm the previous vs this "new" link or am I just working too hard?

Uh huh...

Well when I right-clicked on our Inktomi PFI'd link and look at the properties, it shows up with a yahoo! click tracking code instead of Ink! like this:

All redirects are now going through rdr*.yahoo.com rather than redirect-west.inktomi.com.

I don't seem to recall this looking like this before.I know they bought them an all, but until now it seemed to me they still said inktomi.com in the code.

They did up until about two weeks ago.

Way too hard.
