No, I wasn't aware of that, but that's good to know. Thanks.

I also thought that it was not possible to detect AOL on a PC because, so I
thought, it identifies itself only as IE.  But I see from your logs it's
possible to extract the "AOL" from the agent string to detect (redirect) AOL
users.  Is that right?
