I don't know what could be massively screwed up about it. I don't think 
the URL format for the mailing list archive has changed. What is the 
difference between the google URLs and the actual URLs?

The message index on my search interface was out of date, for other 
reasons, it didn't have September or October messages. However, I fixed 
it this evening and it should remain up to date now.
