Server Upgrade

I just swapped out the two failing 80gb drives that were in this server for 2 brand new 160gb drives. It took about 3 hours to transfer the data and now everything appears to be up and running ok. The second drive will be a daily backup of the main drive. In the next few days I will also be upgrading the database server. Enjoy!

[It's a good thing the server is back up because while it was down, 44 spam emails were waiting for me!]

Local Google Search Upgrade

from [google]:

Demo: cheap restaurants in palo alto.

  • Enhanced user interface - a new, cleaner design that now includes maps on results pages displaying the location of businesses in the search results
  • New mapping capabilities - users can now zoom and pan different directions on the maps without reloading the page
  • Improved comprehensiveness - search results provide links to even more web pages like business homepages and related ratings and reviews
  • More relevant results - improved relevance technology returns even more precise results
