    I am using cookies to find out how the people that bought my programs located my site. This is what I found in my log today:

    Code (Text):
    xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx.pppoe.eltel.net - - [17/Nov/2011:13:24:24 +0100] "GET /chembuddy/?left=BATE&right=pH-calculator HTTP/1.1" 200 9020 "http://www.google.ru/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=bate%2Bph%2Bcalculator%2Bcrack&source=web&cd=12&ved=0CCUQFjABOAo&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.chembuddy.com%2F%3Fleft%3DBATE%26right%3DpH-calculator&ei=8vzETqy7KurQ4QTZrJmQDQ&usg=AFQjCNGk09oSDKskaRpVVcm7ZJSgsRBohg" "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; ru; rv:1.9.2.24) Gecko/20111103 AdCentriaIM/1.7 Firefox/3.6.24"
    Funny thing is, they BOUGHT the calculator.

    In case you don't see it, here is the important part:

    Code (Text):
    [PLAIN]http://www.google.ru/url?q=bate%2Bph%2Bcalculator%2Bcrack
    [/PLAIN] [Broken]

    Call me dense.

    What you're showing us is that someone (in Russia) who ultimately bought a calculator from you - got to your site by Googling "bate ph calculator crack".

    That person already knew about Borek's calculator: He was trying to steal it. He was searching for someone who had published a way to crack into the calculator.

    Oh. When I saw the word "crack" I thought of the drug. Like they were surfing the internet for a calculator that would help them calculate weights and concentrations or something.

    What is he significance of "bate"?

    If "all cookies have been cleared," does that mean I can't have a byte?
