Basically, elog hangs up by the visit of googlebot.

Googlebot repeatedly tries to obtain all (!) of entries by specifying  "page0" and "mode=full".
Elogd seems not to have the way to block an access from the specified IP.
We might be able to use http-proxy via apache. (c.f. http://midas.psi.ch/elog/adminguide.html#secure)

Or can we tweak the source of elod such that it does not accept "page0"?

GET /40m/page0?mode=full&new_entries=1 HTTP/1.1
Connection: Keep-alive
Accept: */*
From: googlebot(at)googlebot.com
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Googlebot/2.1; +http://www.google.com/bot.html)
Accept-Encoding: gzip,deflate



Elog was hanging. Restarted it with script.
