An other stupid search engine playing around in the ratrap. This time, live.com-- one of microsoft's search engines. Back on the 12th
, Yahoo was playing around in the ratrap. They stopped after a few days and my only guess is one of their systems messed up when fetching the robots.txt. Now, most of the Yahoo IP space is off the blacklist. This live.com, however, seems to visit regularly and gets an IP address banned each time. But unlike with Yahoo, it doesn't surprise me a microsoft search engine isn't doing what it's suppose to.
Updated Apache to 2.2.4, PHP to 5.2.1 and OpenSSL to 0.9.8e. Normally this is a no-brainier. This time, Apache was complaining in the config process, saying "Cannot use an external APR-util with the bundled APR". Took a minute or two on Google and I found adding the flag "--with-included-apr" took care of that. With that, everything is up-to-date.
Picture today is a self-portrait. Other then being cropped and removing a shaving blemish, the picture isn't doctored in any way. The effect was accomplished using a 5 second exposure and turning my head part way through the exposure.
