Google Tips

Google Operator Commands: - This command will show you all of the backlinks to your site. Handy tool for finding out who is linking to you. - This command will show you a list of pages that Google thinks are related to your site in some way. - Searches only those pages from the site you list.
allinurl: - If you start a query with [allinurl:], Google will restrict the results to those with all of the query words in the url. For instance, [allinurl: google search] will return only documents that have both “google” and “search” in the url.

define: - The query [define:] will provide a definition of the words you enter after it, gathered from various online sources. The definition will be for the entire phrase entered (i.e., it will include all the words in the exact order you typed them).

inurl: - If you include [inurl:] in your query, Google will restrict the results to documents containing that word in the url. For instance, [inurl:google search] will return documents that mention the word “google” in their url, and mention the word “search” anywhere in the document (url or no). Note there can be no space between the “inurl:” and the following word.

allintitle: - If you start a query with [allintitle:], Google will restrict the results to those with all of the query words in the title. For instance, [allintitle: google search] will return only documents that have both “google” and “search” in the title.

intitle: - If you include [intitle:] in your query, Google will restrict the results to documents containing that word in the title. For instance, [intitle:google search] will return documents that mention the word “google” in their title, and mention the word “search” anywhere in the document (title or no). Note there can be no space between the “intitle:” and the following word.

cache: - If you include other words in the query, Google will highlight those words within the cached document. For instance, [ web] will show the cached content with the word “web” highlighted.

info: - The query [info:] will present some information that Google has about that web page. For instance, [] will show information about the Google homepage. Note there can be no space between the “info:” and the web page url.

spell: - Does a spell check of any given word.

stocks: - If you begin a query with the [stocks:] operator, Google will treat the rest of the query terms as stock ticker symbols, and will link to a page showing stock information for those symbols. For instance, [stocks: intc yhoo] will show information about Intel and Yahoo. (Note you must type the ticker symbols, not the company name.)

filetype: - Does a search for a specific file type, or, if you put a minus sign (-) in front of it, it won’t list any results with that filetype.

daterange: - Is supported in Julian date format only. 2452384 is an example of a Julian date.

maps: - Is a shortcut to do a google maps search.

phone: - Searches for anything that looks like a phone number.

allinlinks: - Searches only within links, not text or title.

allintext: - searches only within text of pages, but not in the links or page title.

This show is awesome. My favorite part is when Riley and Huey are talkin about women and hoes.

Huey: "All women are not hoes. Only 20-25 percent tops."
Riley: "Ok if they not all hoes then why do I still gotta pay to take em out to eat then? I mean, I'm payin. That's payment."
Huey: "I don't know. Cause that's just what you do. You meet a girl, you take her out to dinner but you're not paying the girl, you're payin the restaurant."
Riley: "But I'm payin, which makes her a hoe. Why don't I just give her the money I was gonna spend on dinner and that hoe can go grocery shopping."

Green Eyes by Coldplay

[one of my favorite Coldplay songs]
Honey you are a rock
Upon which I stand
And I come here to talk
I hope you understand

That green eyes,
yeah the spotlight,
shines upon you

And how could, anybody, deny you
I came here with a load
And it feels so much lighter,
now I’ve met you

And honey you should know,
that I could never go on without you
Green eyes

Honey you are the sea
Upon which I float
And I came here to talk
I think you should know
That green eyes,
you’re the one that I wanted to find

The iPod and the Bathtub

How Products Shape Out Perceptions
Do you know why iPOds are so CLEAN??
One day, Ive (the designer) took a crap and thought "Hey, nice bathroom." Kidding ... but it was close to that.
iPod designs are inspired by the cleanliness of bathrooms.
Jo told me this joke and I laughed my ass off. It was useless designer commentary from the article above so I thought I'd post it.

Dejeuner sur 'Herbe

Also known as "Luncheon on the Grass" by Edouard Manet. Saw this in Paris in its true form. It's another one of my favorite pre impressionist paintings. I love the challenging look on her face.

Persian New Year

Norooz from National Geographic

Nowruz celebrations began on Tuesday night marking what's known as Wednesday Eve which is the spring equinox. They will continue until April 1, the 13th day of spring.

Persians typically gather around bonfires and the young jump over fires as they chant the Persian phrase, "Give me your beautiful red color/Take back my sickly pallor." This ritual is supposed to clean the body of illness, bad feelings, etc, getting rid of the unhealthy things and picking up the warmth, the glow, of the fire," Afkhami, the Foundation for Iranian Studies director, said.
