They are coming from a known class C but the name is intriguing. Anyone care to speculate?

Do you also see boobook.idp.inktomi.com in the logs?

No.

Paranoid, me?

It is coming in with a very typical Slurp patter, over many of my domains so I am not worried too much. What are they going to do, take away the remaining 5-10% of my Ink traffic?

lol

I first saw that spider on June 17/2000, it has spidered a couple of times since then. Nothing atrocious happened to the site, but shortly afterward the "cat" Inktomi spider started showing up. I assumed it was related.

I've seen that one here and there for a very long time. I'm not going to dig, but I'd say close to a year.
