In terms of crawling, the last time I checked they were only *third* in that
trail which involves Inktomi/Yahoo Slurp and MSN(Bot). The crawling capacity
did not appear to come down. It is the rivals that began crawling like
crazy. Knowing that it's *hardware* in question, could it be that the
world's bandwidth capacity is being exploited and essentially 'stolen' by
some of Google's competitors?

Intersting opinion, Tonnie.

I was going to use Google for translation (simply because of that American
flag among their icons in GoogleBar), but they do no Dutch.
Use Babelfish instead...


No direct address because they use temporary URL's and embed all in a
