Ben,

Jay told me to email you on data collection/processing stuff, as you're
the PM for that. For the next few days I'll just CC both you and Jay so
it's a smooth transition, then eventually it'll just be to you.

Andrew,

Arthur should have emailed you about the db where he stored the
microsoft crack stuff. How long before you've GeoIPed it, so a reporter
can query?

Thanks,
Ben

Hey,

These files don't list up in the top 2000 files.
I am checking if there are any at all in the global data

I guess we should put them in the billboard data collection: so that we
specifically search for these. Should I ask Andrew to do that?
