Excite for Web Servers doesn't support NeXTSTEP, nor Win95. If I have to
adminster another unix box, I'd rather do glimpse or harvest. My ideal

server. Seems like a fine isolation, instead of a tool which indexes the
file-space and maps them together later.
Any solution? Any volunteers? The entire site will fit on a Zip disk... :-)

How often does scooter visit sites?
When we introduced AltaVista, we used to create a completely new
index every four to six weeks. Now we update our index
continuously to reflect changes on the Web.

according to the frequency at which they appear to change: a
page which has been stable for months will be revisited less often
than a page which is different every time we check it.
