I've ditched the usual header for the moment, I think it doesn't help much anyhow.

(server log from Sept 16, 2009)
Reasons: mp3´s and Kurzweil PC3 sound files for download (see
my wiki and sonikmatter forum) and there are bogus web crawlers which
try to spam wikis which check the forum, and at a rate which came close
to DOS for a small server.
When I keep the server from running too many user things while it is playing server (which it has faithfully done now for years on a row already, 24/7) it does the wiki scripting and databse lookups without swapping or costing much time, so it was fine. Anyhow I blocked the bogus crawlers completely and was a bit sick of it. The router I use does such a job good.
The test of serving about 150,000 hits in one month appeared no problem for any odf the technology or software, that was interesting.
