I actually meant to say, that I updated the chat logs area and
Edd Dumbill who hosts the http://rdfig.xmlhack.com/ site for the RDF
interest group, did the chump pages.

I'm puzzled why you need to do that.  The RDF/XML logs are live on
the web.  If you want to copy them, take the one new file each day
and do something with it.  In fact, I'd rather you didn't try to make
an alternative site.

Because the site was hit by agressive web robot client that tried to
download all the chatlogs every hour, several requests per second.
When it reached 70% of our entire site's requests and refused to
respect robots.txt, I banned the client and the IP addresses.  We are
installing a new server, but I'm sure I don't want it sucked up with
these requests either.

There is only one new file each day in RDF, text and HTML respectively.
Mirroring would take a few seconds.
