Hello say hi to 2009

This one I've been thinking about writing for quite some time. Actually it was about a year ago. Myself being a designer, I don't just browse the net; I browse it thoroughly. I look at almost every part of a web page, i.e., from top to bottom. That is right, I do look at the bottom part too, the footer to be exact.

Today I'm going to list some sites here who have not updated their footer, the copyright date to be exact. Today is January 30, 2009 and sites listed here have not uploaded them.

Following are the list of some of the top global sites who have not updated their date:

A nasty worm has wriggled into millions of computers and continues to spread, leaving security experts wondering whether the attack is a harbinger of evil deeds to come.

The malicious software had yet to do any noticeable damage, prompting debate as to whether it is impotent, waiting to detonate, or a test run by cyber-criminals intent on profiting from the weakness in the future.

The technology behind Google's great results

Recently, I happened to read this article on Google regarding Google's system for great results. We all have been using Google to search may be once or more and have always been amazed by the search results it has provided us.

As a Google user, you're familiar with the speed and accuracy of a Google search. How exactly does Google manage to find the right results for every query as quickly as it does? The heart of Google's search technology is PigeonRank™, a system for ranking web pages developed by Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin at Stanford University.

Building upon the breakthrough work of B. F. Skinner, Page and Brin reasoned that low cost pigeon clusters (PCs) could be used to compute the relative value of web pages faster than human editors or machine-based algorithms. And while Google has dozens of engineers working to improve every aspect of our service on a daily basis, PigeonRank continues to provide the basis for all of our web search tools.

IP Address and Host Name

Gosh, man I'd been trying to display the IP address of any computer and had been looking like hell all over the net for this.

At last I found a good one. This script captures the IP address of the person filling in your form and submits it to you as part of the form. The script works The client IP address is stored in variable "VIH_HostIP". The client host name, if available, is stored in variable "VIH_HostName".

Thanks for the script. You can check out the link here too.
