Has this robot caused anyone trouble, e.g. by requesting hundreds of files? It took only 2 files from my site -- four times each.

The IP address belongs to "Hochschule fuer Gestaltung und Kunst" in Zurich, Switzerland.

While I dont know the spider, I doubt osmeone that comes from an university (of applied sciences), field art & design would be harmful.

What they might have odne is use/program some spider to search for art on the web.. r u in the arts category?

Hi skirril

Thank you for responding to my question. My site is mostly academic plain text. There is some art (maybe), but those pages were not requested.

I did not mean intentionally harm. But sometimes when students work with robots, the robots run out of control and request hundreds of pages, usually the same ones over and over again.

I have to be very concerned about running over my monthly traffic limit. That is why I asked about puf/.

You could ask Martin what he was doing directly.
