Prefer Bing to Google? Not sure why anyone uses Bing, but here’s an interesting article. Basically it seems that Microsoft are copying Google’s search results. To prove it, Google fixed a couple of fake search returns for a search like ‘djksijljeejjw’ or something, so it would return one page that had nothing to do with this search string. The very same nonsense search on Bing returns the same page! It’s not against the law, but someone from Google, who put a lot of resources into refining their search algorithms, said it’s like looking over someone’s shoulder in an exam. Microsoft; never original.

Back to Google, here’s a You Tube internal error message I saw today:

500 Internal Server Error

Sorry, something went wrong.

A team of highly trained monkeys has been dispatched to deal with this situation.
If you see them, show them this information:

I’ve been looking into building a PC for a Hackintosh experiment. Thanks to Kakewalk and iBoot/Multibeast it’s apparently easier than ever to run OSX on PC hardware. You have to make sure the hardware is compatible to what Apple uses. So far it’s looking like I can build a brand new high end i7 silent PC for around £640. (i.e. near Mac Pro performance for the cost of a Mac Mini)

Steps stepped: Not very many. I’ve been at home sick most of the day.
