While skimming through different outlets of FAST'S db I noticed the serps are switching on and off old serps and updated results.
At ATW I get old results most of the time, while Lycos.com gave me more fresh serps.

At Lycos.de I have updated results for searches restricted to german results, while unrestricted serps reflect the update.

Hitting reload often changes serps too. Anyone recognized a pattern yet?

I've seen sporadic different serps on some of the partners. Seems to be different depending on where and how you search. Hitting reload sometimes give different serps too.

I agree with you too shifting results and it does matter how you search.

(pssst heini is the backyard digging done yet)

My experience here in Australia identical to the above. Haven't been able to discern a pattern.
Seemed to be switching around using three SERPs for up to 72 hours. Then, a couple of hours ago, threw in a totally different conglomeration but now seems to be back to original three.
