Sandbox And Switching Domains

I just caught up on this thread, and my personal experience is that I was sprung from the new site sandbox after about 4 months, but the larger effect seems to be that new backlinks, and specifically new backlink anchor text, needs to age like fine wine before it takes effect. This could account for everything, including the so-called sandbox effect I have seen. The new site is currently number one for tens of keyword phrases using allinanchor and allintitle, but our normal SERPs lag. They are, however, moving up as the anchors age, and I think it is just a matter of time before we rank very well in the normal SERPs.
It seems like everything is pretty much as it was before, just in verrry slooooow motionnnnnnn. The hummingbirds on this forum are being driven out of their minds by this, but slow and steady wins the race says Auntie Google. The paranoid beauty of the aging algorithm is you can never tell if you have enough backlinks because everybody is aging links simultaneously, so you have to get lots of links in case a few new cases of aged competitor links are about to be delivered to the SERPs. I think this new algorithm actually fuels the backlink business even more than before, but it also makes it a much bigger crap shoot.
What this thread needs is some humor, so here is one I stumbled on recently that is a great example of British SEO humor, a la Monty Python:
I think you can add the words "sand box" to most of the banter in this piece and it gets even funnier!
