So I check the notorious slashdot today, and there's an article on search engines... hmmm... so now I've added one wisenut very quickly to Castor. Eventually I'll get the search engines all listed and working, then it's a matter of looking at the engine behind all the fun to see why I'm not getting the right results from some of them. I know for a fact that WhatUSeek is getting the information submitted, but for some reason, Castor says it's not going through. Oh well, life is hard sometimes...

All this talk from gregorsamsa about search engines is funny to me and relevant to what I'm doing. mobius talked about how he was bemused by the results from findwhat. Findwhatis a pay-to-play search engine, and one of the ones I've been having a heartache over because they don't have a free submit your site page that I've found.

I have this friend that I've talked to on occassion.... She used to be a recruiter for any skilled worker. I've worked for her a couple of times as a Russian Translator. So anyway, now she's the recruiting manager for Info Group NW, and I'm on the short list for a few positions. I guess that's a score for the small town thing we've got going on here. The funny thing is, she's bounced around town to different companies, and we always seem to cross paths from time to time. I think this is the first time that the small-town thing has ever been good for me..... hmmmm, makes me wonder.
