    The previous record was at least a year old.

    Does that count spiders? (Seriously, I don't know.)

    First Greg needs to order those new freezers. I remember what happened last summer when the freezers broke. :yuck:

    Yes, that would include spiders.

    Hurray! That record held for a long time! About 1000-1200 of those are spiders, but hey, spiders are visitors too :)

    That last record was due to an unusual spike in activity - I want to say that it went all the way back to the Nick Berg video - so we should start breaking this record regularly now.

    Is that right? It was set some time around May 2004?

    I rather like the Google spider that's been hanging around here lately.

    Yes, that was what I was thinking.

    Yes, it seems they're getting friendlier now, not just sucking up data, but actually contributing a little too. :biggrin:

    That weirded me out enough to start with, but not nearly as much as noticing that one of them is now sporting a 'Homework Helper' ribbon.

    Google decided that it was too easy to just index and archive all the world's information. Now, the Google spiders actively invent new information, too.
