The first three are fairly standard fresh update/everflux type thing, but seeing a cached page from a month ago looks like traditional update territory to me.
Also what does "Well shoot howdy bubba" mean in English? I only looked at the thread because Brett started it! ;)

Nothing really dramatic
The most dramatic thing I can see now is that the fresh dates on www-sj.google.com have acquired a comma and are reversed, so now they read 'Jul 23, 2003' rather than '23 Jul 2003'. Maybe that was always the way.
It's crashing mysql server left and right :( My mysql server crash and talked to my server provider and they are saying people are complaining of mysql problem right this moment.
Talked to a friend on a different server provider and he's having mysql problem too and the last thing that went in is of course...googlebot :(
1) Once a month updating of backlinks
2) Once a month updating of PR
3) Once a month crawling
4) Once a month caching
5) Once a month serp changes
I remember when I had to walk through five miles of snow barefoot....
It is hard to make scientific measurements and determine what is an update anymore. Maybe it will be like a syndrome - no REAL defitition - but meeting x or so requirements - like fibromyalgia or ADHD.
Heh. Google driving any of you crazy? Curiously enough, not me. At least so far. I have a theory about how things are working now, and nothing about how things have evolved are inconsistent with that theory. Thus to me everything seems normal. Of course, if my theory is flawed I may be surprised by the future.
As for PR being updated, part of my theory is this is now being done either totally on the fly, on at least partially. What the toolbar shows is not what the algo is using. I also believe this is true for backlinks. Just because they aren't showing doesn't mean they aren't being counted and affecting the SERPs. I really can't explain changes I have seen since Esmeralda without this being the case. What I am wondering is whether Google is using estimated PR mid-update, and will factor in traditionally calculated PR periodically, or if it is all dynamic? Those Google Ph.D's may have figured out a way to do it all dynamically.

I tend to agree. I rarely check my backlinks, esp my hobby PR6 site which had over 200 backlinks once and now shows just 12. After Dominic it was somewhere in-between.
When I compared the 9 data centres a day or two ago, they were nearly all in flux but the total counts for Yahoo etc were supposedly the same at www, www2 and www3.
No complaints at all about my SERP rankings. At the moment, almost any random phrase seems to work for me :)
