how rude

I have a large collection of Tragically Hip bootlegs, which I store on this machine for my easy access from work and home and abroad. It’s not linked to from anywhere that I know of, but apparently “Google found it”:http://www.google.com/search?q=apache+index+mp3+%22tragically+hip%22. So some guy (199.67.140.76, I don’t love you any more!) was pulling down MP3s as fast as the ISP’s link would take it, which is to say substantially faster than I would have liked. Kids these days, I tell ya.

    You’re the computer god not me… but “off.net” has a robots.txt file… but you don’t. One with a User-agent: * Disallow: / wouldn’t hurt or give anything away would it?

    just a random thought. Happy new year… sean.

    Yeah, I thought about mucking with the robots.txt, but the damage was already done. Maybe if I get some spare time this coming year…
