stupid search engines [Feb. 2nd, 2001|07:58 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
This is funny:
Congratulation someone has just performed a "web search" at the HootingOwl Search Engine using the search term

Dr.dre+Keep+Their+Heads+Ringin

and your web site

http://www.livejournal.com

is being displayed on the first page of search results.

To further enhance the ability for HootingOwl to promote your web site, please visit

http://www.hootingowl.com/dir/p.cfm?id=xxxxxx

and also enter your web site as a FREE listing into the "HootingOwl Directory".

What a shitty search engine they have. :-)

Well, speaking of shitty search engines, there's a group of open source guys building a new search engine to tackle that very problem:

Re: egadz

Looking over the site, I doubt it'll ever go anywhere.

i receive that hooting owl nonsense quite often as well. the last one i got was from the words 'indonesian big tit girl'. quite funny that a russian girl with small breasts came up first in the queue.

happy early birthday. blow out candles and then throw some cake at someone.

Re:

Sorry, I keep meaning to get to that, but I've been so busy lately.

You know HTML, right? If you want to go to your provider's text messaging page and disect the very minimum <FORM> and input elements that'll still text message you, do that and send it to me.... then I can very easily support your phone.
