So, I was looking at the bottom of the forum homepage and... 113 users online at the same time last night. The old record was what? 31 or so? How did 113 happen?

Any idea what caused it? Are you saying that isn't an accurate number?
Well the massive surge caused the log to reset (resets every 10mb of logged data). So I don't know what caused it.

I am saying that Goggle, Yahoo, and Microsoft spiders visit the site and forum every day and are generally programmed to not swamp a site with searches. They typically will only generate one or 2 "guests" to appear at a time.

We were getting so many google spiders at Shooters' Legacy that we went over our bandwidth one month and actually had to ban some of their IPs.

Really... well I am going to have to start looking into it because last month we went over half my bandwidth limit. We he around 57GB of bandwidth used out of 100GB.

That is interesting. I did not know that. But it does make sense.
