>One idea that occurs to me is just a bit of extra control and logging. I recall someone
a year and a half ago showing how one gets the PID (process ID) from within REBOL (maybe
Bo or Gregg???). It was easy; I just can't remember it. What if each time a script
started up, it logged the time and its PID to a log file. It also would read this log
file and scan for PIDs that had been running for more than x amount of time and kill
those. It might keep you ISP happier if that could be made to work. Just a thought....
That sounds like it might help ... but I'm not sure a CGI script has enough permissions
to do this.

Yes, the robots are taking over the world ... well, they seem to take over 90% of my
web traffic. The latest one, Slurp, is doing some very funny things.
