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.



Willful ignorance of science is not commendable. Refusing to learn the difference between a credible source and a shill is criminally stupid.

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

Ah, now I get it. Thanks for the explanation, Guru!

#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.)

Around 0305 (PDT) Sunday morning, our server experienced some rather horrendous SCSI problems which pretty much locked the whole thing up. We rebooted and it came up for...like another 45 minutes.
