Has anyone actually tried using it to find anything? I typed in
"microsoft" and got one match from a microsoft site in the first 100
results - www.microsoft.com/italy (in Italian) at number five.

What a joke of a search engine - I sincerely hope no-one is actually
trying to use this thing to find information.

Under unix, type the command:

ls -lt | head

to see a list of the most recently modified files.
