OK, some more link-ho trivia stuff, dredged from my own referer page...

1) Since DaveW has graced me with a few SN blinks, I've noticed there are a heckuva lotta different ways that folks read SN data, and I'm only seeing the stuff that is actually passed by the browser as a referer. Interesting.

2) Linking to a story about a severed body part will getcha lots of, uh, interesting search engine hits. Here are the ones from today, so far:

http://www.google.com/search?num=10&query=SEVERED PENIS AT CAR WASH
http://google.yahoo.com/bin/query?p=severed penis&hc=0&hs=0
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=severed penis in car wash&btnG=Google Search
http://google.yahoo.com/bin/query?p=severed penis in car wash&hc=0&hs=0
http://google.com/search?hl=en&q=severed penis car wash&btnG=Google Search

2a) The LOUD search above came in twice today. Either it's the same person twice, or some of those folks with the broken keyboards have made it over onto the Web from Usenet groups...

2b) Look more closely at the second and fourth items -- check out what those kids at Yahoo are doing. I wonder if they had to send in a detailed plan about how they would use the Google data?

2c) The google.yahoo.com searches are certainly the scariest, if you follow one of them, but not for the reason you might expect. You might get a page which has various search results, but also contains the following offer from Yahoo, near the top of the page:

Auctions: Bid for Severed items on Yahoo! Auctions

Uh, thanks, but no thanks. Ick.

Alwin scores an SN post! He even rated an exclamation point from DaveW.

Jumpgate Alwin goes CSS. Nice! 

Not everyone may be aware that Al was a part of the Radio 8 Beta group. Look at the usernum for the Jumpgate Alwin site. Any usernum that looks like 000xxxx was part of that beta-testing group. Al was pretty quiet on the beta-testers mailing list, which might explain why his name's not on the Radio credits page. But that usernum speaks volumes, baby, even if Al didn't clutter the list up with ramblings, like I did. :-)

Regarding item number two from my list, I hope this blast from the past sparks some creative juices...

I'd dearly love to see an easy to use slide-show renderer for Radio, that allows the user to easily use their choice of tables and spacer gifs OR to use Radio outline Rules or to use CSS to create the slides. Frontier and Manila both already have the first one down, so that should be pretty simple to make it fly with Radio. The other ones may take just a little more time, but WOW! would those be nice features to have...
