Conrad recently informed me of my same-named alter egos on this big blue sphere. I'd already taken a few peeks at them before, but let's do a little more of an extensive survey.
I'd like to first take a look at how search engines are handling my name.
||Right smack on, and two other links on brother and sister's sites are relevant.
||Kind of OK. 3rd is my sister's site, and 7th is a dead link to my old on-site photo gallery. 14th is to my old-school Sourceforge page and 15th is Jacob Scott's page. Went down three more pages and gave up looking for a link to my site.
||Meh, not so great. 2nd is my sister's site, 4th is Jacob's, and 13th is Sourceforge again. Again, went down a few pages with no mention of my site.
||Horrible. Not until the bottom of the second page is there a link to Conrad's page, and no mention of anything else.
Seriously, how can any search engine hope to compete with Google.
Now, as for these alter egos of mine, let's take a quick look at them too.
This guy made a movie once where he got a whole bunch of guys with the same name together and they talked etc. It was really cool. None of them had much in common. Which made it more interesting.
My name is really common. I was JUST told at the library that someone knows someone with my name from SF.
