    I noticed the following appeared in my 404 logs:

    /feed/b2rss.xml 131 -
    /feed/rss.php 130 -
    /feed/b2rdf.php 128 -
    /feed/rss.xml 127 -
    /feed/scriptingNews2.xml 127 -
    /feed/b2rss.php 126 -
    /feed/index.xml 126 -
    /feed/rss.cfm 126 -
    /feed/atom.xml 125 -
    /feed/index.rdf 124 -
    /feed/index.rss 124 -

    anyone got an idea which subscription service is making those calls (Yahoo, MSN, Bloglines, Newsgator, other)?

    I haven't seen anything like that in mine. Can you download your raw access logs? You should be able to search through those for the IP address and user-agent of the person who made the requests.

    If it is asking for robots.txt, it's almost certainly a search engine spider of some kind. Beyond that, gee, dunno.
