You're right - so now the URLs are shown.

Oh yes. And it all started with http://www.rebol.com/ in the beginning. The bot checks
all links _from_ pages that contain the word "rebol". Pages that do not contain the word
does not get their links checked. It's amazing how many URLs have lined up on the checklist.
5000 records per day is my choice. If the bot ran all the time, it could reach about
15000-25000, I guess, so maybe that's worth a try for a period of time.
