My site now shows in the SERPS on this datacentre, but these changes have not been propogated across the other DC's
1. Has anyone else come back on -in, but not had it propogate to the other DC's yet?
2. Are we likely to see -in results fully filter across all DC's (sorry to aim a question directly at GG - but I don't think anyone else would probably be able to answer that one!)
As of the last few minutes, -in is still unique but no longer showing on 1,2 or 3.
yup... same here in buckeye land. Kinda stinks too... I was placing about 10 to 15 spots better on those results and was looking forward to them going live.

Google isn't just trying this stuff out for fun... I think they took so much heat for pushing out the Florida update that now they are trying a more civilized method of trying a new algo on one datacenter and see how it looks. Then they make tweeks and try something else on that datacenter. Eventually they will be satisfied and it will be on all the datacenters.
Like it or not, better be prepared... (In my opinion anyways)
Either way, Google is not happy with what is live out there on www now and there is no question in my mind that the algo is going to be going the direction of -in eventually. The Florida update was way to strict, but whats out there now on www is way too lax (in Google's eyes)
I think -in was the middle ground and in the next couple of weeks and probably sooner something similar to the -in algo will be live on www.
I tried an experiment and loaded my anchor txt with the money phrase and it seems I got penalized big time. I am trying to figure out if this is due to my changes or if it is a blip in the SERPS.
I also noticed that my PR dropped from 5 to 4.
What method would Google use to retire 10 000 machines in one datacentre and bring 10 000 new machines online in their place?
Maybe bring a couple of new datacentres online, then when they are working, just switch the old ones off.
Did they add three or four new datacentres towards the end of last year?
Have a similar number disappeared now?
Hmm, think it over.

Also great would be a change that eliminates the large number of straight redirects.
Also great would be some filtering of subdomains.
Of course they might not do a good job of what they will try to do, but datacenters offline would seem to indicate another positive, major change in either the algorithm or the accuracy of it. You don't take datacenters offline just to again make anchor text 98% of the algorithm again.
