Mangle

Statistics: November 2004

A log is kept of the options and results for each random search. I wrote a small program to analyse everything based on the data from the past month.

Custom word searches were exluded from this analysis, as they would greatly influence the results.

Total number of words used in searches 39079

Number of times no URL was found 93
Number of words in the database 7111
