Hey,

Thanks a bunch for the reply. You're probably right about
whether or not the entire site has been spidered. I believe I
have a few links from download.com, zdnet, and other various
download sites; however, these link directly to the screensaver
or to our main page, perhaps thats why it got indexed.

I do have a background that goes with the smiley screensaver.
It's on the site, but I haven't thought of submitting it to free
sites for a link; I'll definately consider it.

Thanks for the help,
