Google Moon

After Google Maps and Google Earth, Google today introduced Google Moon.

In honour of the first lunar landing, on July 20, 1969, we can now surf the Moon’s surface and explore the landing sites of the Apollo missions. (Courtesy of NASA, of course.)

Don’t forget to check out the highest detail images!

Yet Another Google Bomb

Oh well, I’ll join in the Google bombing. An ignorant asshole has written a column about The Netherlands.

This ignorant asshole works as a columnist for FoxNews, but apparently doesn’t really care to do some research before writing his nonsense.

Apart from The Netherlands being “the land of wooden shoes, windmills, Rembrandt and wonderful breakfasts”, he’s saying that “a Dutch hospital is (…) killing newborn babies who don’t measure up to an arbitrary standard”. Also, Holland has “no governing moral standard”, and “people smoke dope openly”. Finally, “all of this in a country where the Nazis murdered Ann Frank just because she was Jewish and therefore less than human.”

So, here is the link: ignorant asshole.

gmail

Charl was so kind as to invite me for a gmail account!
Of course, I happily accepted!

I’m curious! Charl himself is very enthusiasic about it. I will just have to try and see. Of course, it’s webmail, so that’s a big drawback. And I already have a mail archive – it would be nice if you could import your old mail.

But the 1 gig is nice! That should last for a couple of years, I guess…
I hope…
My current mail archive (since 1996) is 497 Megabytes. But it’s getting more and more every year, of course!

Miserable failure

Try this: search google for “miserable failure”. If you click “I’m feeling lucky”, you are sent directly to the first search result, being (at the time of writing) this page!
Yes, that is the Biography of President George W. Bush at the official White House site.

George W. Bush

Update: Well, apparently, this is called google bombing.
A new action has already been started, directed towards the Dutch prime minister.

Weblog Del Benjamin

I noticed in the NedStat statistics that people found my weblog through the German and French versions of google.

I couldn’t resist trying the translate options of google. Besides the English original, it is now possible to read my weblog in German, Spanish, French, Italian and Portugese!
