Use or write a server which records the User-Agent http field.  Most of them
just ignore it, although some are starting to record it.  Ones I know of are:

  Apache: http://www.apache.org/          (suggested)
  NCSA: (forgot, havn't been there for a while)

I would suggest Apache, because it is basically NCSA, but better.  You can
configure it's logfiles to record all sorts of spiffy information.
