*) Excite: 20 posts from the FoRK archive, the most recent from
mid-June, and a pointer to the FoRK FAQ
*) Hotbot: one post from the archive, a few dist-obj pages, some papers
of joebar's which presumably talk about forking processes, the fork-faq,
and a page on California post offices, for a total of nine.
*) Infoseek: 3 papers written by joebar, and a page on Yamaha motorcycles.
*) Lycos: tens of thousands of pages, with nothing remotely relevant
on the first few screenfuls. (MacPerl, anyone?)
*) AltaVista: why even bother anymore? Their engine technology may be
sexy, but their spidering is a joke, and has been for months. The
only thing they have that's even close to current is the news search,
and DejaNews does the same thing a whole lot slicker.
