Check out this new search facility at [snoopa.com...]
They are clearly filtered uk results, but, i've not had time to work out which engine these are from.
I have noticed in my site logs and ink spider which appears to tie in.
Anyone else spotted the spider? inktomi2-nor.server.ntl.com is one of them and there are at least two others i've seen.

The results are Inktomi, compare with Freeserve / NTLworld.

>inktomi2-nor.server.ntl.com

Are you sure that's not inktomi2-*not*.server.ntl.com.

That is the host name of the NTL cable modem service, are you seeing spidering patterns from there? Also NTL are running an Ink cache.

What IP's do you have, most cable customers are 62.254.

Hi NFFC,
Definate about that, also had
inktomi2-not.server.ntl.com - - [26/Jun/2000:21:22:36
and
inktomi1-car.server.ntl.com - - [26/Jun/2000:22:05:08
Also spotted
m276-mp1-cvx1b.bre.ntl.com - - [20/Jul/2000:22:05:30 looking for robots.txt

Separate point. While scanning quickly, also noticed
vscooter.pa.alta-vista.net - - [18/Jul/2000:11:46:07 +0000]
Not seen that one before (as far as I can remember).

>m276-mp1-cvx1b.bre.ntl.com

cvx1b is a modem / dialup rack.

IP 62.253.73.20 normally .20 are reserved for gateways.

Why would a dialup rack be interested in robots.txt? Very odd.
Perhaps it's a home user with a robot!

Hmmm, just spotted this too
webtrack.cwcom.co.uk
This seems linked somehow.
Any ideas?

cwcom.co.uk was cable & wireless now owned by NTL.

I know the link in that sense, it's the possible link regarding the robots.txt, ink robots mentioned, snoopa, et al?

I've also had

inktomi2-nor.server.ntl.com
and
inktomi2-mid.server.ntl.com

I get numerous m*** numbered ntl ones without the inktomi as I use them for dial up most of the time (not via cable) but the inktomi ones are sporadic.

Hi oldtimer,
yes, me too. There must be some reason for this. NTL has got to be involved with ink in a bigger way, somehow.
