Check out your favorite search engine, [url]www.google.com[/url] and run a few random searches. And investigate "the secret technology behind Google's amazing accuracy". It's good for a few laughs. [url]http://www.google.com/technology/pigeonrank.html[/url] CJ

From the page: "This open space lin/ax [combination of combination of linseed and flax food for the pigeons] powers Google's operations to this day, and a visit to the data coop reveals pigeons happily pecking away at lin/ax kernels and seeds."z

When I first went to run a search, they gave me a message that said something to the effect of "Access forbidden. Google has detected unauthorized use of Google's system from your domain recently, consisting of multiple events of use of automatic remote searches, which is a violation of Google's terms of service agreement. We have not yet resolved this matter with your host." And it specifed my IP address. I hit retry, and all was normal. CJ
