LQ being hammered?


The post count on the "How To run bat file from Unix script" thread is surprisingly high. It was started last night, and it already has over twelve thousand views. It looks very much like someone is using a bot to poll for updates.

Hi,

That thread is over 8.5 years old. Guess it has accumulated some views over the years....

The thread you're referring to was actually started in 2002, so has been accumulating views for 8.5+ years.

It looks like druuna responded while I was, but just to verify: only 211 of those views have occurred in the last 2 days.
