Bandwidth Woes

FYI, it looks like there’s a possibility of this site going down for later tonight. I received an email last night saying I had used 80% of my allocated bandwidth for the month1! Today, I was discussing this absurd spike with my webhost. He started looking into it and while reading over his shoulder noticed I was up to 90% used. From the look of things, there is some sort of spider2 which is acting wonky and just repeatedly downloading the same data over & over. If this continues too much longer, I’ll be out of bandwidth for the month. Fortunately today is the last day of the month so I might get lucky.

1 I get 3GB of bandwidth each month and in a normal month I use ~300MB.
