Here are some of the posts from John over that two-day holiday period:
- Why does Google show meta descriptions much longer than 160 characters for certain key phrases?, Google Webmaster Help
- Geo-targeting a city - from an SEO perspective, Google Webmaster Help

Thanks John for helping on a day off, consistently.
