WebTop ‘no idea where Andy Mitchell is’
Search engine can't find former boss
There are growing fears as to the whereabouts of former WebTop boss , Andy Mitchell.
In May El Reg reported he was on "gardening leave" after the search engine operation was merged into knowledge management outfit, Smartlogic, with the loss of more than 20 jobs.
Another report said Mitchell was in Australia.
Now, though, even WebTop's superior search engine is unable to find the man who rose to fame as the head of AltaVista UK.
Ask WebTop.com to search for "Andy Mitchell" and you get the following reply:
"Error processing request
An error has occurred whilst processing your request.
(The error message was: Even WebTop, with its 500 million page index can't achieve the impossible. We have no idea where Andy Mitchell is.)"
How odd. ®
