Jim Roepcke raises a good point about the Google boxes that are starting to appear on UserLand weblogs and other places: They're going to undercut Google's ability to rank pages, because every box artificially increases the rankings for the links in that box.

You're welcome. I'm planning to use Google's API to feed my News Aggregator. I wish it went deeper than 10 links, but it will probably be useful for the right search terms. It'll also be nice to write code that interfaces with a search engine without needing an HTML scraper.
