Yep. I got stunned into action/ worrying when I read
(http://selfpromotion.com/yahootips.t) that because
the Open Directory now feeds AOL, netscape, Alta Vista, Lycos, and
Hotbot directories, that they're number 2 in the human-compiled-
directory stakes.
As their results are feeding through to the other directories, I'm
getting close on as many (indirect) hits from DMOZ as I am from
Yahoo. But then again, the totals are still nothing to crow about.
How does it feel to have such power, Joe :-)

cheers
Duncan
