Amen, Brad, those two just look Bloggerific in that photo. Is anyone getting the feeling we should create a fake blog that everyone links to in their sidebar and see how long until the pseudoblogger is mentioned in a print article? posted to MetaFilter by anildashat 9:05 AM on December 28, 2000
So what does that bring the total number of weblogging tools to? I know about Blogger and Manila and now Xanga off the top of my head... what else is out there? posted to MetaFilter by anildashat 11:27 PM on December 26, 2000
Hitler appropriated the swastika from Hindu mythology
Man, that still pisses me off. Woulda been such a cool symbol to get to keep for ourselves. posted to MetaFilter by anildashat 1:03 PM on November 16, 2000
Speaking of which, can we lace every 50th cigarette with cyanide? Smokers want to die, let's put a winner in every carton! posted to MetaFilter by anildashat 10:54 PM on November 13, 2000
re: drinking to death on the 21st bday -- that is so very sad and it could have happened to almost any one of us. you know it.
Yeah, I remember that time a gang of thugs held me down and forced me to down a shot. And then another. And another. Until I had downed 20. It really could happen to any of us, if we're dumb enough to pour a toxin down our throats in massive quantities. posted to MetaFilter by anildashat 7:35 AM on November 14, 2000
Seems like a poor man's version of Lycos Top 50, which has been going for quite a while and is actually rather entertaining.
A slightly dated, but still interesting, list of commonly-searched terms is at Search Engine Watch, and the original search voyeur pages are still running at MetaSpy and MetaCrawler Voyeur.
My take on the whole thing was way back on October 11 of last year.... [more] posted to MetaFilter by anildashat 6:31 PM on October 5, 2000

Was trying to find documentation for Napster's protocol when I thought about all the weird extensions that applications have added to our systems.
Napster uses nap:search?artist=artname&title=Word+Word+Word. Obviously, just replace artname with the particular artist's name (multiple words joined with plus signs) and song title works the same way. I'm still parsing out the syntax for the rest of the variables, but those aren't really that important anyway, are they? I wish that ISDN...

Cam, I don't think they're too interested in cross-correlating Hotmail users with Passport users: All Hotmail users are Passport users. Passport is just the authentication system used by Hotmail. (And the new MSN Explorer, and MSN Messenger, and the Game Voice thingy they just put out, etc. etc. )
Although I must admit, I really like the new look for Hotmail in MSN Explorer. If you haven't seen it, or only saw preview 1, its' worth a looksee. posted to MetaFilter by anildashat 9:02 PM on September 11, 2000
Interesting thing here is that I think any of these scientists could have drawn parallels to human instinct to murder, and the topic would have been much less controversial.
Other animals practice cannibalism, even of their own young, or violence towards family members, etc. I'm not arguing whether those behaviors are more or less repellent than rape, but I would suggest that making clearer the attempt to draw parallels to other animals might help to defuse some of the...

Man, one of my three wishes would have to be for all the money wasted on DrKoops and half.coms to go to the smart people at places like DeepLeap and Pyra. But such is not the way...
I guess it's still not to late to remarket all the code that was developed as a BizTalk server plug-in or something like that? posted to MetaFilter by anildashat 11:19 PM on August 21, 2000
