Sorry so far no Update

The different datacenters have different numbers presented but the link: is the same.
both www2 and www3 are pointing to the San Jose datacenter, this may be a sign though, because they probably move the new index to the San Jose datacenters the quickliest.

...no update yet, but 3 *was* different than www and www2... no question about it. It has reverted.... but it always does. NFFC couldn't see it in England at the exact same time I was looking.... we still have a while, I'm sure, before it goes into full swing.

link:www.yahoo.com showed no results... refresh... 657,000

Strange i check most of the different ip's (i don't know it's something like 12) quite often (won't reveal how often, because then Google will ban my ip, all i can say it's often enought to spot a update ;) )

And yes the different datacenters seem to have problems responding, i also get what you describe Dogboy, but that's not the update ;)

Can y'all stop saying 657,000?!? The Others [twitch] are yelling it in my head enough, I don't have to hear it from y'all too!

Maybe you could just refer to it as "that number".

Hey, it gets dull around the plex some days. There's only so many ways you can decorate your cubicle.

I put it forward that there is no monthly update!

Its just a Google competition for employees - the winner gets to try and wind up as many WW users as possible at the end of the month - the ultimate winner gets a free turkey at Xmas.

Septembers guy is in the lead so far....

Looking at Brett's chart [webmasterworld.com], I think march guy is still in the lead.

Hmmm...

Being a week late vs upsetting lots of people.

Tough one.

I reckon March´s guy gets points for that first week in April, but loses points for the imense relief after that time.

Septembers guy upset a lot of people.

Youve gotta respect that! ;)

Just keep checking link Yahoo.com. Yawn, yawn. No update guys.

I already blew my first prediction and have no right to another but wouldn't it be fitting if the dance started at midnight on halloween? I'm guessing that it's either midnight tonight or midnight tomorrow night.

Just for once I wish they would do it when I was awake... London is not the ideal place to be for an update... :(

hmm..seriously.. what is up? I think it has something to do with the holidays.. i doubt their being kind and giving us a chance to update our sites for them intentionally, although it is a much needed break.. but will they put it off til mid month or whats up? Rolling out a completely new algo that needs alot of tweaking? I wonder... (like I am sure we all do)

The 'plex has an internal thread running taking bets on the first WW user to 'lose it'.

The winner gets a WW mousepad.

Too late ... from the number of threads started over this update, (including the twitchy guy - great title BTW) I think you've all lost it! ;)
