19971210: "If your question is not answered here [...] call [] and ask for Larry."
19971210: " This is a demo of the Google Search Engine. [...] Number of Web Pages Fetched: 24 million"
19980510: "Current Repository Size: ~25 million pages"
19981111: "Index contains ~25 million pages (soon to be much bigger)"
19981202: "Google! BETA"
19990508: "Google can make you feel lucky!"
19990508: "Here is our main logo full size, created using GIMP. If you want to hack on it, here is the XCF file."
