Okay, here's the deal: Whenever I use the W's Google search function, I wind up with the "Your search did not match any documents." message. It's not until I check the "Search Wienerboard.com" button do I get the results I want.

Now, I understand that "The W" is still fairly new, and you obviously know about this since you left in the "Search Wienerboard" button, my only question is: what, specifically, is the reason I can't search directly from "The W"? Could either one of the Zim brothers clarify this for me?

It's probably looking for site: the-w.com by default. Right now, Google only knows us by our old name. It will probably take a while (forever?) for them to get the new site.

Would you call that a "good thing" or a "bad thing"? :D

#grep Googlebot /var/log/apache/the-w.com-access.log | wc -l
10740

It'll probably take until the next Googledance.

I've reverted the search code so a "The W" search *should* work until everything over there moves over.

(OK, I don't have a clue what gets written into an Apache log, but that looks like a goodly amount of entries. Wouldn't that mean that they have indeed been by? ??? Please do educate me, kind sir.)
