I Trapped a Bot

Seems I managed to trap a bot. It hit one of my files over 14,000 times in the past two days. No worries, though, I just added this line to my .htaccess file:
# DENY THE TROUBLESOME BOT! deny from 64.124.85
As far as I can tell, the hits seem to be coming from a place called Exava. Hmm... maybe they should work on that - their bot isn't going to get very far if it allows itself to hit the same file 14,000 time.
