Iran finished Paralympics Games of Athens 2004 23rd with 7 Gold Medals, 3 Silver Medals and 13 Bronze Medals, totally 23 Medals.
Guardian: “The triumphant spirit of the most successful Paralympics to date gave way to mourning yesterday after seven schoolchildren died in a coach crash on their way to the games. Today’s closing ceremony, which was to have been a joyful celebration of two weeks of athletic excellence, has been toned down as a mark of respect. The organisers have cancelled the musical entertainment and firework display that had been planned in the 70,000-seat Olympic stadium in Athens. Instead, there will be a brief athletes’ parade, a speech by the International Paralympic Committee chief, and the handing over of the flag to Beijing, the host of the 2008 Olympic and Paralympic Games.”

Google’s index should be growing exponentially to keep up with the growing size of the web. Google’s main page indicates that it searches 4,285,199,774 web pages, and this number has remained the same for the last year and seven months, since around February 8-14, 2003. I bet they are suffering from a 4-byte limit with their URL identifiers. With 4 bytes, which is the natural word-size for the inexpensive ia32/x86-compatible processors they are using, they can store 32 bits, and that means 232 different values, or 4,294,967,296.
