The box Veronica is on is a p200mmx
Jughead is on another p200mmx
Freebsd for both.
The list of sites is included with the 
About_Veronica_Search text and
About_Multi_Search talks of Jughead

I am having problems with the .tree script in 
that there is not any decent fall backs for things
like high latency or lost connection, there is 
an "Alarm" sent in text and that ends the "tree-ing"
for that site. This may be why the results are so far
differing at times with yours Cameron.
I have shown which sites "Alarmed" and therefore
are incomplete.
For instance: #alarm long way in
that is to say after a long time and quite far
in the tree I recieved an alarm which indcates
one of several things, timeout, loss of connection,
exceded "depth" etc.
Durring my indexing I was experiencing the intitial
network failures to my ISP via SBC lines as well I 
am afraid, so I will be working on a better database
Cameron I think you are indexing more than I atm as 
well, with my raw data being about 20M and the data 
file being 10M with a 1M offset file and a 5M "other" 
file . I will put Veronica up on the gopher tommorow
or the next day so you can see how Barrie did this in
perl if you dont have the software.
I am running this nearly "right out of the box"
Only had to fiddle with the file tree.local to
allow off site indexing. I am working with 
Veronica-local which was, as I am seeing it, a 
local Veronica much like a Jughead would be.
It's a very neat script imo and for my level
it's teaching me as I work with it...
Gotta run late for work!
