Yahoo Press Release [ysearchblog.com].

Well, the crawler finally decided to move and find a new home. We are moving our crawler from inktomisearch.com to crawl.yahoo.net.

it'll be interesting to see if they drop the inktomi penalties along with the old crawler. Doubt it but theres always hope;)

Maybe the speed of the index refreshing will speed some what as well, they are so slow for me.
