Google the 66.249.71.43 is melting my server

%%title%%

Dear Google,

You are fantastic, but can you seriously chill out on siphoning bandwidth from me? On an average day my server dishes out 6 GB of traffic (mostly from spudart.org and some from unlikelymoose.com). But today you have hit me up for 2,616 GB of bandwidth. That’s right. Over two thousand gigs off outgoing traffic from google. The main IP addresses hitting my server is 66.249.71.43, from Google.

Ouch.

Also, check out your incoming stats – even for the incomplete 3/6 stats, it’s WAY higher than normal.
