Search Requests [en]

When I look at my referrer logs, I’m often surprised at the number of people who land on my logbook by making Google searches.
Some people search for glass bangles. Others for madam tulsi. Others type sari wearing, ywca new+delhi india, or khoobsurat lyrics.

Nothing very funny up till now, you’ll say.

I kept the best for last.
Just minutes ago, somebody had landed on this page by searching wet sari sex.
Here is the exerpt from my page:

… had many occasions to interact with the opposite sex). … that I had made a terrible mistake. The wet sari and petticoat were catching on my legs, and the …

You’ll have to admit it is a trifle misleading.
I hope that I haven’t been rated as “adult content” – though that might get me a few extra hits… hehee…

Nice [en]

Just in case you haven’t explored more after my last post, go and have a peek at waferbaby’s brainstorm. He’s got a really cool concept there: ask a question, let people reply by email, and publish the answers.

I’m very tempted to steal ; )

CSS and PHP Tutorials [en]

The two small tutorials I made for users.f2s are finally finished and online. I wont duplicate them on this site, so you’ll just have to go and read them over there : )

India Web [en]

This post started out small, but it is turning out to be a rather lengthy collection of India travel related links… : )

I did some research with Google and bumped into a number of sites containing travel logs (travelogues) of India.
I spent some time skimming through them. I read things I can relate to, others I disagree on. Some I know to be right, some I know to be wrong. But never mind. They all tell of a human experience similar to mine.
Almost all of them have pictures – but they load slowly, I must say.
Have a look for yourself!

India travelogues

Of course, it could go on for ever. Some meta-links:

This is not a “quality” listing. I haven’t explored each site in-depth. It is more of a starting point – but in any case, all the links presented here seemed to be promising in some way.

Awaiting your comments!

Jakob Nielsen Links [en]

Despite all the criticism I have heard/read lately on Jakob Nielsen, I have always found his alertbox articles very interesting.
Of course, one has to keep in mind that his standpoint is usability, not web design, and that it is therefore to be taken with a pinch of salt or two.

Here is a little collection of links I have gathered, mostly from his site, a few from other places.

Writing for the web

Other “website” stuff

Phew! I think that’s about it.
Remember, posting these links here doesn’t mean I adhere to everything the articles say. It means I think they are good reading.
