Autumn 2005    (The season Opera went free)

  1. [inktomi.html]
    Yahoo!/Inktomi's search syntax
    by Nemo
    (Updating the older essay inktomi.htm)
    Part of the searching essays section.
    No one lights a candle and hides it under a bushel, except Yahoo!
    Wizard searching!

  2. [longtermsearching.htm]
    Long term searching: rules and advice
    by Fravia+
    Part of the searching essays and of the evaluating essays sections.
    Estote parati!
    Time and again, seekers realize that many fellow humans don't even know how to use the exclusion operator on google - this usually leaves us feeling hollow, sick, and ashamed that we inhabit the same planet (let alone that we belong to the same species) as such scum :-) Time to throw some knowledgeballs down the webhills!

    Updated again!

  3. [Two talks in Helsinki, Finland]
    15-16 September 2005: T2'05 Conference in Helsinki: "The web: bottomless cornucopia & immense garbage dump" and "FFF: Finding forbidden fruit"
    (And Jaakko Kuivalainen's interview, in finnish)

  4. [../realicra/bartering.htm]: Bartering
    by Josť Carioca, part of the [reality cracking] section.
    Loved the game!

  5. [funny.htm]: Funny and weird search engines
    Ok, this section may result completely irrelevant, but it is great fun nevertheless... I'm confident that each seeker has encountered some of these 'weird' search engines. And maybe it's nice to have a place where to "dump" them. This will demonstrate -again- that the web is really deep (and really weird).

  6. [bangla.htm]: Opening Windows: the legal approach
    (or: How do you set up -legally- a full-fledged windows computer without any money at all)
    by fravia+ (There's no need to pay for anything on the web, duh)
    Part of the Introduction section.
    Well ok, once again: you have windows. So you need some programs. So you "need" Word, you "need" Excel, etcetera... but... do you actually have to pay in order to have very good programs? The answer is NO!
    Updated again!

  7. [bookmarklets.htm]: Bookmarklets: Weapons for the seeker
    Have some sharp blades, fellow seeeker...

  8. ... as usual, some new (or slightly updated) pages:

    by fravia+ (There's no need to pay for anything on the web, duh)
    Part of the Introduction section.
    Well ok, once again: you have windows. So you need some programs. So you "need" Word, you "need" Excel, etcetera... but... do you actually have to pay in order to have very good programs? The answer is NO!
    Updated again!

Spring 2005 

  1. [anonion.htm]: "Anonymity with onions": how to use TOR for pretty good anonymous browsing
    by vvf
    Part of the anonymity and of the anonyweb sections.
    Now, unless you're a ruthless criminal, your browsing is safe. Just don't use anon proxies to do anything really stupid that could land you in a sea of trouble, anon or no anon. Anon proxies should be used like gloves (to touch sites/servers you don't trust) and/or shades (stay anonymous in the crowd), not like weapons.
  2. The path of the elite windoze xp warrior
    by AAVV
    Part of the Introduction and at the same time of the Classroom sections.
    Woah, I bet you did not know you had already on your own harddisk -or could quickly have- all this stuff at your command & disposal...
  3. [opera_java_roma.htm]: Personalising Opera using javascript
    by ~Roman
    Part of the tutti all'opera section.
    not only can arbitrary javascript be executed, but also arbitrary executables...
  4. A talk in Dublin, Ireland
    20-21 april 2005: Netsoc Internet searching talk at the Trinity college: "Basic wizard web-searching".
  5. [opera_adding_roma.htm]: Adding functionality to Opera
    by ~Roman
    Part of the tutti all'opera section.
    First we need a way of capturing our incoming and outgoing packets, without stealing them from Opera, and without using a proxy... Next we need a program that, given all of our packets, will discard any non-http ones, and extract the http headers from those remaining...
    The good thing is, this approach is not just limited to viewing headers, but to any application that you can write a C (or any other language) application for...
    (For advanced seekers)
  6. [bangla.htm]: Opening Windows: the legal approach
    (or: How do you set up -legally- a full-fledged windows computer without any money at all)
    by fravia+ (There's no need to pay for anything on the web, duh)
    Part of the Introduction section.
    Well ok, once again: you have windows. So you need some programs. You "need" Word, you "need" Excel, etcetera. Do you have to pay something? Do you have to give money to Microsoft? The answer is NO!
    Updated in May!
  7. Everything about [google] and then some. The "summa" of everything we know about the most important among the main search engines.
    by fravia+
    The aim of this section, simply stated, is to offer for free, to anyone, a "summa" of all possible knowledge about google. This should make it completely useless -for anyone- to buy books called "google hacks" and similar. My hope, and joy, is to put out of business (and hopefully push towards suicide) all the wankers that stole the free content of some good sites in order to scrap some money out of it.
  8. [../realicra/annoyingsales.htm]: How to counter telemarketing and other pests
    by fravia+, part of the [reality cracking] section.
    "I have some high-yield, tax-free municipals on offer at an extremely attractive price and virtually no risk. Are you interested?" Well, go for it: "Yes! I am very interested! Please send me everything, I'll pay as much as necessary... let the idiot hope for as long as you manage, it happens so seldom that he'll wet his pants in anticipation of his 'sales pitch' ... and then, after as long as you want and manage to play with him, put the phone down IN THE MID of your sentence, and when he'll phone back (almost immediately, noone cuts the line while speaking, it must have been a technical glitch) start anew the whole bazaar. Remember that the point is to have them lose their time AND to have fun!

WARNING

My servers are of course configured to monitor activity and deny access to sites that violate the netiquette guidelines. Continued rapid-fire requests from any site after access has been denied (for instance through a 403 Access denied HTTP response) will be interpreted as a network attack attempt and will find an according response... without hesitation and without further warning.
In most cases such erroneus request-processes are run by well-intentioned but thoughtless neophytes, ignorant of common sense, yet at times there have been outright attacks against my sites.
I have no intention of inconveniencing in any way my many readers just because a small handful of incapable morons, with neither interest in nor understanding of my actual content, is utterly incapable of abiding common netetiquette guidelines.
This said, if some specific application, or private mirror, or legitimate spider, requires relaxation of the above guidelines, contact [me] in advance for any attempted download. I'll most probably allow it.
