thanks dan

as usual, more info than i can swallow in one sitting

thanks for the Browser Report, i'm going to add those user agent strings to
the ones i got offlist yesterday (thanks aardvark)

some truly amazing nuggets buried in there, the non-browsers, crawlers,
spiders and bots, for instance --

  7541: Mercator-Scrub-1.1  5916: Mozilla/3.01 (compatible;)
  5264: ZyBorg/1.0 (ZyBorg at WISEnutbot.com; http://www.WISEnutbot.com)
  3526: FAST-WebCrawler/2.2-pre41
  2028: Teleport Pro/1.29.1590
  2021: Come to papa v1.0
  1932: ia_archiver
  1732: Gulliver/1.3
  1688: Googlebot/2.1

and get this -- not listed: 4,810 browsers!!!   `:-o

how the heck are you supposed to write a browser sniff routine if there's
5,000 browsers out there??!!

i also liked the Search Word Report, Listing the top 20 query words by the
number of requests, which sounds like a manic pseudo-haiku we all might
chant during a nightmare...

       "javascript netscape
        asp in and to flash form
        css dreamweaver html
        submit php sql browser
        mac redirect
        download templates window"
