PageRank: still broken

A friend just pinged me on messenger to let me know that if you search Google for "Schwarzenegger for governor" you get an entry form my blog as the first result. (See screen shot on the right and click for full image.)

I wonder how long that will last.

Maybe I should sell some ads on that page in a hurry? :-)

If this keeps up, I'm starting a Google category in my blog.

Update: Phil has some interesting thoughts on this too--beyond what you see in the comments below.

What is that smell?

It's blowing in from the front window. It smells like burnt rubber stew or something.

It's so nasty. And distracting.

And my new neightbors with the loud kids are making a hell of a lot of noise too.


I should reply to that condo for rent posting at work. It sounded much nicer than my place, it's closer to work, and the rent is cheaper.

Google News Alerts

Launched today on Google Labs is Google News Alerts.

Google News Alerts are sent by email when news articles appear online that match the topics you specify. Some handy uses of Google News Alerts include:
  • monitoring a developing news story
  • keeping current on a competitor or industry
  • getting the latest on a celebrity or event

Too bad it doesn't search blogs too, huh?

Of course, we've had alerts on Yahoo! for ages.
