Is YOUR Website GOOD OR EVIL???!!!

August 12th 2011 04:00
Yes, there is a way to mathematically calculate the soul of your website!

Gematria was developed by Mr. Ivan Panin to determine how good or evil a web site or a text passage is by searching for different patterns through the text.

Using The Gematriculator as provided, you can type in any website or passage to discover the percentage of evil versus good properties.

Google for example returns a hit of 50%/50%....

FunFacts scored a little better....

Die Fail Whale!!!

Speaking as a fledgling in the Twitterverse (a word alone I find implies that there should be poetry ala Lewis Carroll attached) I have noticed that it does crash fairly consistentently, overloaded with the number of users and heaven knows what else.

The privilege of having seen more whales on Twitter of late than tweets, therefore led me to this little online game:

Facebook icon
With the growing concerns involving Facebook and its ever changing privacy settings, a few software developers have now engineered a website that allows users to trawl through the status updates of anyone who does not have the correct privacy settings to prevent it.

Named Openbook, the ultimate aim of the site is to further expose the problems with Facebook and its privacy settings to the general public, and show people just how easy it is to access this type of information about complete strangers. The site works as a search engine so it is easy to search terms such as "don't tell anyone" or "I hate my boss", and searches can also be narrowed down by gender.

The 22-year-old originally sought a ride to California, but after more than 300 strangers on the Internet offered him rides, Vaughn found himself passing from vehicle to vehicle to travel through 30 U.S. states in nearly as many days, the Oregonian said.
