i don't have specific download which people are leeching, but I have a database which produces pages which people are leeching and stealing my bandwidth.

I think I need to stop people accessing a certain amount of pages per day.

But I don't want to stop google bot or the yahoo bot.

I don't mind paying a small amount for commercial protection, $50 perhaps.

But I think the solution need to be PHP / MySQL based, I think.

Help ?
