Google SearchWiki Back! Can be removed…

The reports are true, Google SearchWiki is back. The reports continue to be mixed.  There’s even a Greasmonkey script created by Franz Enzenhofer to remove the SearchWiki available here.

Please make this optional. Keep it in the lab while the bugs are worked out. Don’t add and remove as you work out the bugs, let users add it to their search results if they want mess with them fine.

I’m a little concerned that search results vary already based on location, and whether you are logged into Google or not. That already confuses matters enough. The good old search days when I would search for something and everybody got the same search results, no matter, Madrid, New York, Portland, Los Angeles, all got the same search results. I kinda of miss those days.

Stooges fans of all ages make AFS’ popular “Stooge-Fest” part of their Thanksgiving tradition.

This years event, PARDON MY AMNESIA, is a brand new collection of bona-fide Stooges Classics that we have somehow forgotten in our past screenings. This a great line up of guaranteed laffs, presented on the Alex Theatre’s Big Screen!

The titles chosen by our blue ribbon panel for 2008 are:






We are excited that this year’s bonus features include a very rarely seen 1974 INTERVIEW WITH LARRY FINE, provided to us by his family. Larry talks about his early career, the Stooges vaudeville years and how the trio developed their film personalities and wacky brand of knock-about comedy. As we have each year, we’ll also present a clip from a “lost” Stooges short or feature film.

Fun? Soitenly!

Running time is approximately 2 hours 30 minutes with no intermission, and the film is suitable for ages 6 and older. Photo/Video recording by patrons is not allowed.

Google SearchWiki to the Lab

Several days after launching it appears that the Google SearchWiki is now moved to Google Labs.

I played around with it for a few searches. It’s interesting how it works where you can move your search results up and down the search results. It’s hard to say what really happened. The change apparently happened early today November 22, 2008.

ABC Ink Affiliate Program Report

I have been an affiliate with ABCInk for over a year now and have made a couple sales.

I have tried several times to find out what is going on with their tracking and have not gotten anywhere.

I just tried sending another email to their general mailbox and will try to call over there tomorrow. Apparently Michael with Comptree is the Affiliate Manager, but I have no phone number for him.

Online Marketing Specialist
Comptree Inc.

It’s obvious that someone is working the program as I get the email daily.  What a program where you send emails and don’t respond to the affiliates trying to make you money.  There are plenty of other ink/toner programs out there to promote to have to deal with one that is unresponsive.

ABCInk you need to listen and respond to your affiliates.
