So you want dig 200 different sites. That means you have 200 different
entries in the start-url: field of teh config file. I'm right?

Well, i have still a similar problem with long entries in the start_url:
fied. If there are more than about 30 URL'S htsearch will hang in the
digging prcess (or was it before digging?). And as far as i know, this
problem appears at other sites as well and there hasn't been a fix until

So I think there are a lot of glad admins, if
will fix the bug.
