Recently the H1 and ZEUS collaborations have presented cross sections for D
IS events with a forward jet. The BFKL formalism is able to produce an exce
llent fit to these data. The extracted intercept of the hard pomeron sugges
ts that when all higher order corrections are taken into account the cross
section will still rise very rapidly as expected for low x dynamics. (C) 19
