Besides Danny Sullivan, Threadwatch, and this site --at least sometimes-- the one and only reputable source of search engine news is Chris' and Gurtie's Gray Hat Search Engine News (GHN). GHN tracks search seriously, that is they omit all fun one may have with Web search. For example when a major search engine fails to meet the basic criteria of what you and me think is common sense in Web search, they will post an analysis which reads dull as dust. GHN hates rumors, speculations, and humor. They post the sheer facts and only the facts. So, if you'd like to get search tracked for you in a serious manner, with no efforts involved (like bothering you with links instead of quotes), subscribe to the best search blog out there: GHN.

"The before-image log, also called the 'bi file', contains the primary transaction log of the Progress RDBMS. It is an integral and essential part of every database and is just as important as the data extents used to store table data and their associated indexes. Without the before-image log extents, the database cannot be accessed." ... "Although it is called the 'before-image' log, the data stored in it are not before-images of anything. The name is historical and perhaps was poorly chosen. The before-image log contains records, called 'notes', that allow previously made changes to the database to be repeated (redone) or rolled back (undone). The before-image log is mainly used for two things: to perform crash recovery in the event of a failure, and to perform transaction rollback during normal processing."
