Ah, thanks (*reads it*).

Is the set up actually a crawler? It's not clear to me if you're using a
predigested index the outside sites provide, or if you're crawling it
yourself. I'm assuming based on

that you are crawling it yourself.

How many selectors does that translate to? For the record,

gopher% ls -sk # in kilobytes
total 956399
146408 history.MYD          3664 prospects.MYI          12 stats.frm
105496 history.MYI            12 prospects.frm      304968 textil.MYD
    12 history.frm             6 stats.MYD          391104 textil.MYI
  4696 prospects.MYD           9 stats.MYI              12 textil.frm

so not quite a gig so far. Note it is not full-text.

textil is the keyword and relevancy table, history is the selector/display
string database, prospects is the workspace table and stats is cached
precomputed statistics used for /world. This is with 1.1 million selectors,
give or take a couple thousand, using my regular "stupid" crawler library.

Mind you, this is not a competition :) I'm just curious about how you're
getting things up and running. So far you seem to be getting pretty good
results for an early effort, so you are to be congratulated.
