Except that Google declined forcefully enough that MSFT is apparently
shopping elsewhere for their search engine. That could be a bargaining
tactic, but it really doesn't look like it.

To drag this thread kicking and screaming back onto topic, does anyone
know what Google uses Python for, and to what extent?


#  sigmask  ||  0.2  ||  20030107  ||  public domain  ||  feed this to a python
print reduce(lambda x,y:x+chr(ord(y)-1),' Ojdl!Wbshjti!=obwAcboefstobudi/psh?')
