Hello just got visited by a new spider, here are the details:

originating ip:
fetches robots.txt
up to 4 requests per second, fetches only .html, .shtml, and .php, no images, no stylesheets

Looks like a 'site-download' script to me.

Any ideas?

Google on the UA turns up nothing at all.... the IP is a Swiss ISP (and it looks like a small one...)

Think I will just keep watching for it here!

Skirril and Dave,
I had some heavy activity from a Swiss bot either last year or the year before. I'll have to see if I can dig out the IP.
