First, again, great job.
Second, I'm curious why the modrewrite doesn't affect all article links, such as when they appear in the Older Articles box. Those links are the same old clunky dynamic ones.
Also, is there anything fundamentally different in the way Google will perceive those links that have been converted, from how the previous hacks such as Imago has employed and developed?
Reason being, I've switched my Google hack from an older system to the new Google Tap. And articles from my site which are normally added to the Google News service within a matter of minutes are now not showing up. Worse, or even more perplexing, a few previous stories that had been showing up in Google News still do ... but now with the crappy dynamic URL. Previsouly all of my stories in their system had the nice short ones.
Now don't get me wrong: The fact that stories with the dynamic URLs are making it in at all is a good thing. But something seems odd, and I can't quite put my finger on it.
The bottom line is I'm concerned that even though Google Tap is meant to make life easy for a Google spider, perhaps something is not quite there. And as a result, my news stories are not gettng into the Google database.
Google seems back to indexing my news stories, but for better or worse is taking some with the nice short URLs and others with the dynamic ones. Maybe this goes back to my initial question about URLs being rewritten throughout a site, including in Older Articles and Backend.

It can take Google from a couple days to a couple weeks to re-index a website. I wouldn't worry about that, you should be back to normal soon. It happens to all of us.
As for the old-articles.php, here is the idea.
Instead of taking a rewrite link that has only "&" in it and duplicating it to have "&" I have simply decided to have one set of links for each URL.
I don't want to build a massive array that needs to be compared for every link on every page load. So what I've done is modified the code directly in old articles block. Its a simple change from either "&" in the links to "&", or vice versa.
The next google tap will have that documented for old-articles and other mods like my_download. Hopefully I'll get it out tonight.
To see the results, cruise those sections here on site.

Ben, the same happens to my forum links. One and the same link can be taken with or without sid trail by Googlebots from DIFFERENT IPs.
I see, Paul has included new code for Nuke 6.x sessions.php
BTW, where did you get the articles pagination hack? I wonder when there be next page in the Topics and News, or there already is and I don't how to turn it on?
Old Articles are showing with the short URLs in the right situated scrolling block. The same holds true for the posts in the left block (New Symposium). But I have double rules in the header.php, as Paul said, first with
