I've checked other places and they say the old PageRank but maybe we're on the verge of another PageRank change?
Anyone notice this?

I do think that spidering is less frequent. It used to be any new page would be listed on Google in 2 or 3 days and now it takes at least a week.
This last drop is worrisome though.
(I'm enjoying this entirely too much - no wonder they slowed the update to quarterly - or I'd be checking it daily like all the other SEO's hehe).
Pirates, does changing the IP for toolbarqueries.google.com in the hosts file look up anything other than the toolbar-pagerank? You cannot check "real pagerank", can you? (Unless you run a few hundred computers to calculate it on your own...)
I have some pages designed in Oktober still with PR0, and I also have this peculiar situation with homepage being PR4 and some other first level pages also PR4 since that obviously interrupted/rolledback update "by the end of the summer." Finally a whole bunch of pages designed in summer, burried deep down in the folders with the status of "pagerank not yet assigned."
So there are definitely some changes to be expected for me with the next update. Seems as if this update primarily starts with US pages, and it would be helpful if you all could add to your observations:
Where are you from?
What I find interesting, is that the x.x.51.x DC shows PR for new inner pages of one of my (german .net) domains, but still doesn't show PR for some very old and excellently ranking pages of the same site.
*first day category page/PR0
**relatively new page/PR3
The category page has no external inbound links, only internal ones from all other pages.
jio mere lala google..jio
I'm from Australia. All my PR's have changed (from PR0 --> PR5 mostly with a few 4's and 3's) last night. They appear static for now ~8 hours later - all at the new values, I'll keep watching. I did a data centre check, and the new PR's were only on around 30% of the datacentres when I checked last night, and that's still the case this morning.
They are probably making it easier to get a PR between 2-5, and leaving higher numbers the same.

Unless this is the dance-phase, I figure losing my PR means I'll lose my edge in terms of advertisement rates on my site.
