The index cleanup stage occurs when you delete a content source or start address, or both, from a search service application. It can also occur when the content indexing connector cannot find a host supplying content: The indexing connector will look for the host during three consecutive crawls, but if the host is not found it will delete the content source and cause the index to enter the cleanup stage.

Document Thumbnails and PowerPoint Preview for your search results without installing FAST for SharePoint
Wouldn’t it be nice to have this feature on all versions of SharePoint? I will tell you how, as I demonstrated in a proof of concept talk at Arctic SharePoint Challenge 2011.
[Update June 7th 2011 - Check out Thumbnail Extender for SharePoint on CodePlex for a thumbnail webpart using OWA]

I just finished off v2 of the FAST for SharePoint Query Logger and the download is available from http://fs4splogger.codeplex.com/.
New functionality added is:
- Pretty print of the executed FQL
- List any refiners used on the query
- Display the rank calculation per entry in the result
Thanks to FAST for providing a script to show the calculations, which I ported and modified for this program.

Instead of having a deployment script creating your properties, you could have an event receiver which creates your mappings once a site or list is provisioned. Or when some other action is going on.
So how do you go about doing this?
