I see you're using Google Desktop !!

Hi there verizon.net user at IP address 71.120.171.173

I see you're using Google Desktop to scan my atom.xml file every 5 minutes. Well please stop it! I only update the damn site once every blue moon, so once a day is more than enough.

579 times you downloaded my atom.xml file yesterday. And it didn't change once! Please learn how to use the settings to reduce the frequency of your poll.

Thanks!

And you fuckers at google! I thought you were supposed to be smart! Can't you use a default of 1 refresh/day?

  • I thought it might be me. but i'm using bloglines and my ip is 70.68.xxx.xxx. I guess it's my ip that you would see but it also might be one at bloglines that queries your atom file. Also I just checked if google had bought up bloglines but it's owned by ask jeeves so it's not looking like it's me! If you find it is then let me know and i'll turn it off.
    Merry Christmas.
