    None of the newer SE's have made it to the major leagues due to the incredible size of the competition. Newcomers have a pretty steep hill to climb and today it requires major ching-ching to get you there.

    I knew altavista also had a Norwegian divison (http://no.altavista.com/), so I checked it out, and found the following altavista divisions in addition to those already mentioned:
    03/99 Altavista Germany
    09/00 Altavista Denmark
    10/00 Altavista Australia, Ireland, Spain
    11/00 Altavista Norway, Austria, Switzerland
    12/00 Altavista Brazil, Portugal
    01/01 Altavista Belgium
    03/01 Altavista New Zealand
