I have almaden blocked in .htaccess but browsing my log file found a few entries, same file, different days. It may be that they're trying to create a new bot.

Eyes open people. Here's a snippet of entries.

66.147.154.3 - - [15/Nov/2003:18:37:46 -0800] "GET /genetic1.html HTTP/1.1" 200 16191 "-" "Test1.0"
66.147.154.3 - - [16/Nov/2003:22:09:59 -0800] "GET /genetic1.html HTTP/1.1" 200 16191 "-" "Test1.0"
66.147.154.3 - - [16/Nov/2003:22:10:16 -0800] "GET /genetic1.html HTTP/1.1" 200 16191 "-" "Test1.0"
66.147.154.3 - - [16/Nov/2003:22:11:40 -0800] "GET /genetic1.html HTTP/1.1" 200 16191 "-" "Test1.0"
66.147.154.3 - - [16/Nov/2003:22:11:43 -0800] "GET /genetic1.html HTTP/1.1" 200 16191 "-" "Test1.0"

Maybe I'll block 'em this time by their IP block, and if it should affect innocent parties, then let those people complain about "unfairness" to that provider who can then consider dropping the bad guy.

I saw that one on the same day:

66.147.154.3 - - [15/Nov/2003:10:26:02 +1000] "GET /some/page.html HTTP/1.1" 200 9516 "-" "Test1.0"

No visits since - I suspect someone at big blue just f..ed up ;)
