    Default Just read that on the guests section (main page)

    Total guests that have visited the forum in the last 24 hours: 1,072

    Visitors (135), Yahoo! Slurp Spiders (926), MSNBot Spiders (9), Google AdSense Spiders (1), Google Spiders (1)

    What is that? I can understand the Google things (for the ad). But what about the Yahoo slurp sliders?
    At first, I discovered the wonders of classical music through the marvels of its baroque period and especially those from Mr. Handel, which explain my forum nickname. About 10 years ago, my interest leaned over classical period and Herr Haydn's production. The music bus recently drove me to the early 1800s. Where will it end?

    It's all the same thing. Spiders and bots that keep crawling the web for all eternity. They just do the crawling for different companies.

    Want a piece of classical music identified? Post a link or upload a clip here. Someone might have an answer.

    Found this article in Wikipedia that gives explanation to what these spiders and bots do.
