Is this true. Is this the last time DMOZ last updated. A whole month. What is going on?

I'm seeing "Search database last updated on: Wed May 3 14:43:53 EDT 2006".

The month between updates may have been something to do with the fact that the ODP has been migrating to new servers. Just a guess.

I also see May 3. BTW the search function is just a subsidiary one of the ODP - we pay much more attention to the category pages and the weekly data dump.

ODP-Search is distributed on several servers, so in the case of one server not being up to date, different users may see different dates. This bug occured once or twice AFAIK.

I tried and received the new one as well. Due to the server upgrade that was already mentioned, there may have been symptoms like this. If someone is able to reproduce the outdated search results now, please post here, so an editor can file an internal bug report.
