I never realised that I could do that in mcdar. Thanks, Borek. You hit two
birds with one stone.

...or when the "flux" is finished. I tend to believe that if the OP dropped
down initially (due to Jagger), the best among the results should reflect on
the final position /across all datacentres/. It takes time for the new state
(i.e. high poisitions) to propagate. The low positions are just an artefact
of the update perhaps?

As more datecentres contain the /newer/ state of the data, you will appear in
page 1 more consistently and get a larger number of referrals. I can see the
effect of this already... There are at least 3 or 4 datacentres that have
Jabber 1, 2, and 3 accounted for.

They should be localised, but having run a search for 'leather bags' in
google.com and google.co.uk, I see only /slight/ differences. Nonetheless,
there /are/ differences, but they may be due to different datacentres being

They were up until late last night as far as I can tell. They might be still
sleeping, so they can't hear you, yet. *smile*
