The ABCs of Google search bar

The Google Search bar in Firefox has an "auto complete" function. Start typing and Google will guess where your search will go. Given that is probably based on the frequency and prevalence of these terms, it is another cool way to feel out the zeitgeist of the web. This was another draft post from a few years ago, so some of the autocomplete words changed since then. Now I have an ABC timecapsule of 2008.

Rachel Ray montage

Cleaning out the "draft" folder has yielded another treasure. I'm not sure what sparkling commentary I was planning on writing for this montage of Rachel Ray enjoying food, so I'll present it now with no futher explanation.

Dystopian Future Shirt

I'm not sure why this post was sitting in my draft folder for two years. It contains link to buy a perfectly cromulent t-shirt, one lamenting the current state of affairs.

Diagram of my online presence

To keep straight the details of all my wheeling and dealing on the internet, I have created this little chart. At first glance it's a mind-numbing mess. Subsequent looks confirm this.
The Slashboing Empire

What it all means to me:

I post to each Flickr, Blogger, Twitter, and Livejournal by logging into each, or via email (which I seldom do). To read all the comments made on my posts, I only have to check Hotmail and Flickr.

What it all means to you:

To read everything that I contribute to the internet, you only have to check my LJ account: drhaggis.livejournal.com and my flickr account: flickr.com/photos/drhaggis. Everything I post to Blogger gets posted to Twitter, which gets bundled with its own content to be fed to Livejournal.

However this has recently changed. The "Loudtwitter" service I was using to bundle twitter missives to livejournal is down, and is unlikely to come back. Meaning I need to find a safe and suitable replacement.

I have also updated the format of Slashboing.ca, in an attempt to keep looking up to date. Let me know what you think!

A case of the Mondays, Keyboard Cat style

Ron Livingston (Office Space, Defying Gravity) was born to play keyboards in cat parody videos.
