Sometimes all the N's are X's.
It seems ok, but what page are they grabbing? I'm not getting any errors, but what is going on?

On one site the traffic exploded from 300 uniques a day to +4.000! :)

Doh! Of course..

I bow and scrape, and I'm really embarrassed and sorry for not checking the site search.
Thanks for clearing :)
