Re: [ProgSoc] Fwd: [STOP] iSEEK and Compensation (fwd)
Forgive me for putting an argument the other way but...
could it simply be that the search engine has not be registered with
information on those topics yet? It could be a relatively new search
I have always believed that a search engine works by people volunteering
their sites (or by a web crawler from following a link). If this is so,
then we are assuming that people from overseas are going to add their
sites to the Australian search engine. I think this is a bit much to ask.
On the other hand, could we then add links to overseas sites to get them
Maybe I am completely wrong :)

"I've been laughing for so long
I liked it better before...
Before the words even fall from you mouth
I couldn't disagree more
I've been laughing for so long
So long that I'm afraid
Afraid to say... so so so long now
so long now"
