Speaking of bots...

There's a worrisome phenomenon going on in my web analytics. Usually the vast majority of visitors to this web site are from locations in the US. Over the past few weeks I've gradually noticed there's been a huge influx of visits from Russia.

I don't think they are targeting me - I think this is more likely evidence that the Russians are focused on the US generally, probably planning to try to help Republicans in the midterm elections.

Although it's also possible they are bots constantly trawling for ways to hack and steal from computer systems. Operating in Russia of course.

Or both stealing money and stealing elections.

I see Trump is planning to meet his boss, Putin, in Finland.

I guess Putin is giving Trump his annual employee review.
