The internet is supposed to be like the human brain
Well, actually, the human brain is one of the things I was beginning to worry about... On one of the sites, I'd recently put up a custom 404 page, new robots.txt, and I'd updated .htaccess; and I was beginning to imagine I might have misconfigured something to cause Googlebot to make endless requests for the robots.txt, filling up the log file and crashing the whole server. More than a momentary thought. ;)
Thanks... It may sound selfish to say, but I'm glad I'm not alone.
Performance Level of the Network
There is currently a worm attacking the Microsoft SQL server causing bandwidth saturation throughout all ISPs.

Brett's post re the Google update... msg #49:
They are out crawling hard today - this may be the crawl. There were several last year that were 'pre update' crawls and no post-update crawl.
It looks like they have redirected almost everything to other datacenters (Non California one's), this is probably due to all the problems we are seeing in the California area.
