Thoughts, stories and ideas

I just took a quick look at my server logs. And I see that there are some bots that are constantly crawling my site. If that would be search engines, feed readers etc. that wouldn’t be a problem. But this are crawlers by companies whose websites try to sell me some tools to “make SEO easier” and “uncover the strong and weak points of my sites and their competitors”. They are crawling my site and make me pay for the server while they are building indices to sell for big money? I think that sucks.

A few days ago, an OVH data center went up in flames and was completely destroyed. This reminded me that it is important to store backups in another place on earth if possible, so better not in the same data center as the server that might burn down.
