I'd love to read the article, but I don't know where to go.
If you are trying to make a link to the article, you need to put the url into square brackets
Like this, only you use "" instead of "<>"
<url=http://whatever url it is>title here</url>
Here is some help, if you need it:
Some help [webmasterworld.com]
I know I still get it wrong sometimes.
Oh yeah, and Welcome to the forums!

Oh, but it's fast alright, Air. And I suspect a single box could easily hold the entire db. I just did a search on a term that returns 342,567 pages on Raging... this one produced exactly 373 matches.

"over 50 million documents are now searchable"
crawler: Speedy Spider
The crawler will fetch HTML documents and WAP documents
I've seen the US results somewhere before, but can't quite peg them. Spidered ODP, maybe?
Maybe Rencke will run a few tests on some European terms.

Just did a few searches, couldn't find my sites, but it is blazingly fast.
Here are the stats on my search:
-The best documents that match your search-
361 matches in 0.000 sec
Served up in no time at all - wow!

yes, that is pretty fast. Maybe you and I aren't up on Swedish search terms, eh Air? Where are those darn Swedes when you need them, anyway? Oh wait, I'll bet they're all over there at the elk-hunting site, aren't they?

I'm not so sure it's the Swedish terms rc, just ran a few more tests, it appears that some type of uniderectional accelerator technology (UAT) is being employed.
While query results are returned in 0.000 sec the advice on the URL submission page states:
"Only hit the submit button once, it should take less than 10 seconds."
If they can get bi-directional accelerator technology (BAT)in place, whew, it'll be smokin', can't wait to spider it.
Speaking of bats, why is that darn elk hunting screen always dark, don't tell me they put that up and it's dark until spring. Yes, someone from Sweden could certainly help with these unexplained mysteries, rc, I hope they come along soon.

Could it be that elkcam is 1/3-way around the globe from you, Air?
| 2:00 am on Oct 11, 2000 (gmt 0)|
I was thinking it may not lighten up until April.... still that 1/3-way around the globe probably has something to do with it.
"Sweden is also known as the land of the "Midnight Sun". In the north, during the summer months, the sun never sets. In the winter months, the sun never rises above the horizon." -elk silhouettes anyone?

Good Morning. The Swedes are asleep during the ungodly hours that you people keep and no provocation at all is going to get me out of bed at 3am, no matter how hard you try.
Re entireweb.com: It is not hard to be fast with an index the size of a peanut. My standard acid test is "Sweden" which ought to give 2 million hits at the very least. Here's their report: "18449 matches in 0.000 sec"
Re fast.com: I think Lasse is referring to www.alltheweb.com, which is Fast's address. They report: 2769318 documents found - 0.2040 seconds search time for "Sweden".
If you really want me to go deeper into this, I will. But is it worth the effort?
Re. Elk screen black: This may surprise some of you, but the earth is actually round. A fairly recent discovery. The man who figured it out was burned. In this country we have daylight this week between 04.30 and 15.30 GMT. We are 6 hours ahead of EDT and 9 ahead of PDT. If you guys didn't stay awake all night sleep away all morning, you could win elk spotting prizes.

I believe you've wrapped it up. No more testing needed.
