Hmm... at least the record looks better now!

I figured it out. Seems our forums are being crawled now by Search Engine Spiders, who are indexing stuff into search engines.

I have now exterminated them. Might take a couple of days to block them but they'll go away. :mischief

Search engines send out "spiders" and index the web. They came to this forum last night but now they won't come back...

I guess we were randomly selected to be indexed, but I don't want that due to it leading to tons of hits. Sometimes massive amounts of hits can be a bad thing... on my wallet. :mischief

Yep, I appreciate all donations from members. It really is a kind gesture and helps lessen the costs a little...

Stop being so proud son, consider it like a video rental. You are letting everyone put their 2 cents in on the board, why not let them put their 2 cents into the board. 365 days x .02 = $7.30. Multipy that by about 80 or 90 (I'm compensating for Das having 20 names :D ) and you can really be raking it in.

And than you can get Sally Struthers to advertise for you:

"For just pennies a day........"

Okay, I went off the deep end there. My check is now in the mail :deal

later........
