OK, so I'm adding entries and fixing up the Castor spider my development version here, and I'm just getting amazed at things...

The original Castor code was written last year, and in that time, the state of search engines has changed considerably.

So many search engines now are only pay-to-be-listed. That's so strange to me. <rant voice="whiney"> Hello, it's just a search engine, not religion </rant>

To their credit, there are several out there that are still free, and that allow you to submit to them from the outside world. Yea, verily. But for now, I'm taking out the search engines that don't work, and I'll figure out why one by one.. I think it will take a bit of time, though.

Heard this today, in my random mp3 collection:

By the old seaside

Ain't no place far to go
I don't know
I don't know
Ain't no place far to go

It's a dollar, she say
Te amo le mas
Te amo le mas


--Pixies, Santo

So today, I'm off to Corvallis for an install fest, or at least the last of it, and then it's off to the mountains by myself to fish my skinny little butt off and fall asleep alone under a tarp. Life is sweet.
