Nasa's Spinoff Tech search query



  • This happened when I searched it with a blank search to get all results: 

    [code]

    This is the search report for the search you ran on Feb 20 15:52:45 2007.
    It is a temporary file, and will expire about an hour after the search.

    -------------------------------------------

    Searching /home2/wais/database/index/spinoffs...

    Your query:

      ($$NOPTOKEN$$) AND (ti=($$NOPTOKEN$$)) AND (ch=($$NOPTOKEN$$)) AND (pb=($$NOPTOKEN$$)) AND (pg=($$NOPTOKEN$$)) AND (ct=($$NOPTOKEN$$)) AND (or=($$NOPTOKEN$$)) AND (co=($$NOPTOKEN$$)) AND (st=($$NOPTOKEN$$)) AND (te=($$NOPTOKEN$$)) AND (ab=($$NOPTOKEN$$))

    is equivalent to:

      (((((((((((<nothing> ) AND (ti = (<nothing> ))) AND (ch = (<nothing> ))) AND (pb = (<nothing> ))) AND (pg = (<nothing> ))) AND (ct = (<nothing> ))) AND (or = (<nothing> ))) AND (co = (<nothing> ))) AND (st = (<nothing> ))) AND (te = (<nothing> ))) AND (ab = (<nothing> )))

    and was interpreted as:

    AND
    ( AND
        ( AND
           ( AND

    )

    Atleast it's nested :P



  • I really want to see the -2 files that claims to have returned.



  • @BradleyS said:

    I really want to see the -2 files that claims to have returned.

    I think what that actually means is that it grabbed 2 files off the user's harddrive and added them to the database ...

     



  • No, it means that they have two anti-matter documents on the server. The next person to upload two normal matter documents will witness them annihilate each other, releasing energy enqual to their combined mass.

    Just be glad that it didn't find sqrt(-2) documents - we'd then be dealing with imaginary documents, implying that the server is concious.



  • It wouldn't show me the -2 results. I tried to find it but... Ah well.

     

    edit: I'm not suprised it took less than a second to find -2 files.
