Updated site after seeing many reported errors
There has, recently,
been a huge increase is the website reporting bad queries - something taking
the contents of the address bar, corrupting it and resubmitting.
No big deal but irritating to get dozens of emails telling me that the website
had a problem. (There is an automated mechanism that sends an email when
a crash would have occurred).
I implemented a log so
that I can easily see what hits the site is getting.
Bizarre, many hits from
most unlikely places, Poland, Russia, Singapore, Japan, Thailand etc.
The site is being
crawled by many bots, most are legitimate search engines, but a few are bad
Much research on Bad
Bots etc. and I have made a start on blocking these guys.
