Weird headline, huh?
Google is doing a major upgrade to their search data centers. during this upgrade, you can check out how the new data center acts and behaves (code named "BigDaddy") through several IP addresses.In addition to 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52, BigDaddy is now up at 184.108.40.206.
How do I know if the version of Google is using "BigDaddy"?
A: There’s not a definitive way outside of Google. But the [sf giants] example Here remains a pretty good test. If the query [sf giants] returns giants.mlb.com, the odds are pretty good that you’re hitting BigDaddy.

PS (unrelated funny tidbit)
This "soldiers taking drugs" experiment certainly looks like a Monty python sketch. (via Google scoped blog)
