    "Internal server error...."

    "Additional Apache Error 500....."

    Slow? Are you kidding. It is so slow, if it went faster it would stop. I gave up several times trying to look at the latest gallery photo.

    A few slow response time problems over the last few hours, followed by a 500 error when trying the latest post. Couldn't get to any page after that. Closed and reopened the browser window and the problem went away. Using IE 6.0.2900 in Windows XP Home edition.

    well I tried really hard to make the yahoo spiders behave, because I do like being indexed by them but they are just out of control. They ignore my robots.txt, and yahoo support gives me zero help. They are hitting us 10-15times a second. I have banned their entire ip range now and our cpu has gone from 4-16% usage to 0.35% usage..

    You can see we've now dropped from as many as 300 "guests" on the site down to less than 60. So we must have had over 200 search spiders indexing the site at once, no wonder things were bad

    I just checked cpu usage and it's now at 0.16%, much better

    It would be helpful if from this point on further problems are reported, especially connection issues. Thanks!

    Problems again this morning - can access the site, but when I try to look at images, I get the message that the site is unavailable.

    More spiders?

    As far as I know everything is running great, we currently have a security expert implementing a new system for us so it's possible things were down for a few mins while he did this. He says he's never seen a site so infested with spiders & bots..

    "I've had problems with bad bots in the past, but you've got the biggest
    problem from them that I've ever seen."
