I watch my logs like a hawk when I'm near the internet. My site is PR6 and has been getting freshbotted regularly for several months. I'm used to watching fresh results come and go and seeing the deepcrawl. This is different. I'm sure that 64.68.82.xx has moved me into the permanent index somehow since Feb 1.
<added> palmal, usually the log files can be opened with a text editor like Wordpad, along with all the log analyzer programs. If you can just ftp dl the raw files and look at them in Wordpad, then search for 64.68, you'll find if freshie's been there. You'll see something that says googlebot somewhere in it. 216.239.xx.xx is the deepcrawlbot, if we ever see it again, and you can do the same thing for that</added>

This is true, but you can also open your log files in Excel as a tab deliminated file which will allow you to sort them by what ever you're looking for.
Also, I'm on a Mac and use Fetch as my ftp program and it allows me to view the file on the server without downloading it. Maybe your ftp program will allow this also. I can take a peek anytime and just scroll down to look for the 216 or 64 ip numbers.
