A spider is a program designed to collect a group of information quickly at one time. This guy didn't want to go through each page and download them individually, so he made a program that grabs all the mp3's in a certain subdirectory at once. It overloads the server because it can't handle the activity. The ISP is pissed because their server is getting messed up.
