I'm going to be attempting the new pub version tomorrow. One thing I'm also going to do is either make a shell script or small little Java program that will go through each shrubbot entry and see if that GUID has been seen in the last 6 months. If not, it's going to be erased...
The reason being is that the newer pubs especially use the shrubbot very extensively. The B1 shrubbot has entries that have been around as long as the server has. It's almost a 1 MB text file now and it can be cleaned extensively for memory and processing's sake.
You don't have to do anything special... just connect, let it fully load, then disconnect.
