And today’s security alert is in Leicester….. (mobile post)

Today was supposed to be an enjoyable day out of the
office in Leicester as part of a work event, but no I
am currently sitting in Loughborough station because
no trains are stopping at Leicester due to a security
alert. Ah well it’s another station to add to my places
visited list and at least there is a warm waiting room
here and even better it’s not currently raining.
Hopefully it’ll be sorted soon, and Ill be able to
continue as planned. Otherwise I suppose it’s straight
back to London.

UPDATE: well I managed to get a coach to Leicester, work all afternoon and catch the train back to London from Leicester without any problems. I really hate being out of the office as it means I’m not up to date with the news, it wasn’t until my Dad called to check I was home safely that I even knew that 2 women had been arrested at gun point at Liverpool St station where I travel through each day. Luckily when I got there everything was open and I’m now relaxing back in Essex beer in hand & food on the go :o)

    Yahoo Boasts Size of Its Search Engine Index

    Trying not to include any phallic analogies, Yahoo this week announced that its overall search engine index is much larger than Google’s and is the most in depth index of ‘web objects’ on the search market. On the Yahoo Search Blog, Yahoo disclosed that its index now includes 19.2 billion web documents, 1.6 billion images and more than 50 million audio and video files – over 20 billion items.

    Yahoo is usually shy about disclosing the size of its search index, but the Yahoo Search Blog is celebrating its first year anniversary and Tim Mayer thought that somewhat of a retrospect was in order – since Yahoo has grown into its own as a search engine powerhouse over the past 365 days.

    From the YSearchBlog : While we typically don’t disclose size (since we’ve always said that size is only one dimension of the quality of a search engine), for those who are curious this update includes just over 19.2 billion web documents, 1.6 billion images, and over 50 million audio and video files.

    Note that as with all index updates we are still tuning things so you’ll continue to see some fluctuation in ranking over the next few weeks.

    Greg Sterling of the Kelsey Group, however, makes the distinction of quality over quantity What I, Joseph User, care about is accuracy, quality and relevance. The available index does matter in terms of bringing me a sufficient quantity of results. (And if I’m looking for something really obscure, having that thing in the index is obviously important, which may go to size.).

    But there’s a major case of diminishing returns—there’s already way too much information online for people to assimilate. Throwing more volume at me does nothing but make my eyes glaze over. What I want is enough relevant results.”

    Index schmindex, the moral of the story is what Yahoo has accomplished over the past year and what the next 12 months will bring with not only Yahoo Search, but the Yahoo Publishers Network, Yahoo LinkSpots, Yahoo Pay Per Call, and Site Explorer. What has Yahoo accomplished over the past year? Well, here’s Tim’s rundown :
