08:39 – It was 60.7F (16C) when I took Colin out at 0625, clear and calm. The little dog is still hanging around. It was standing at the front door when I opened it. Colin either doesn’t like it or is afraid of it. He refused to go out at first. I waited a while for the little dog to leave and then took Colin out. He did his business hurriedly and then ran back to the front door to be let in.

We got more bottles filled yesterday, with more to do today. Barbara is home all day today, so we should get a lot done.

Ordinarily, this site gets 650 to 750 visitors (unique IP addresses) per day, totaling 2,600 to 3,800 visits (page reads). But over the last couple of months, I’ve had a pest hammering the server periodically, adding 10,000 to 18,000 page reads per day to the total count. (This site doesn’t HAVE 10,000 unique pages, let alone 18,000.) This happens two or three days a week, on average. All I know is that this pest’s IP address is assigned to Amazon Web Services in Dublin, Ireland, and that the user agent is Vegi. It’s very annoying.

Amazon is no help. I would have thought that simply reporting the source and destination IP addresses would have been sufficient, but they want me to go through hoops before they’ll even check it out.
