Testing out some improvements to our crawling back-end

Some of our users may have noticed we recently lowered the limit on # of pages crawled per job to just 10,000.  This is a temporary measure while we test out some major improvements to the crawling back-end.  If the tests go well, the limit will be pushed back up to 1 million (probably 10 million, actually) by the end of this week or early next week.  We think this will be the last major upgrade to our back-end.  It should allow 80legs to more-easily scale into the billions of pages crawled per job.

So please bear with us as we continue to work on the service – thanks so much!!
