Im seeing the following in my logs

Visitor IP:
UA: FAST-WebCrawler/2.2.6 (crawler@ah-ha.com; [ah-ha.com...]

Does anyone what what type of relationship FAST and AH-HA have? Should I be feeding them optimized pages for FAST?

Any help is appreciated

"The FAST Web Crawler is a distributed crawler that collects content from the web for use by ah-ha.com's Web Search."

This has been an issue for me for over a year now. The databases are not at all in sink. It looks to me like they are independent of each other, but there is a possibility that Fast will do a uni-directional data dump -- or even some cross referencing.
