  34. I had the best 6 hour long all day chat session going with my wife yesterday on gtalk. I hereby officially love talk like a pirate day.

  35. OT:
    How do I get rid of all Google books and videos in your search results? I don’t want to see them there since they are NOT relevant to what I am searching for!
    I don’t understand why you mix in all that. I didn’t ask for it! Did anyone else ask you to do it? Is there any research you can show that people want to see that type of stuff in your search? What you show is your own stuff. YouTube, Google videos. Google books. What’s next? Google Movies? Google Animal Planet? Google Entertainment? Google Classifieds or result from Google Base? It’ll just be stuff from your own company. Who want’s to use Google in the future then? I know I won’t and people in my company are not allowed to watch any type of videos so to us it is totally useless. Books? If want anything about a book I go to a bookstore! If I want to watch a video, I don’t go to Google to search for it. I go straight to YouTube (at least I did but not anymore since there are better ones that has more fresh content than YouTube).
    Needless to say, I am disappointed with your search result now, so if you have something I can use to get rid of all the c**p, then I REALLY would like to know how to do it!

  36. The average man will bristle if you say his father was dishonest, but he will brag a little if he discovers that his great-grandfather was a pirate

  55. Aaaaaargh matey. Where is me parrot?!?!

  56. Argh!

    I started a cyber clinic for ‘Googbies’ (evolved webmasters) that were suffering from Post Google PR Update Disorders. The extremely long wait since the last PR update has caused us to deplete our cash resources, as well as, our stockpiles of various treatments (alcohol, bubble wrap, etc…). I’ve also lost all of our volunteers due to psychological problems of their own!

    Can I count on Google to assist me in getting the clinic ready to handle the expected record numbers of Googbies stricken with Post Google Page Rank Disorders!? I think it’s the least Google can offer since it has made the situation worse by dragging this on and on.

    For more information on the clinic visit this thread on DP:

    And ventures on the yard
    The landsman who no better know
    Believe his lot is hard
    Bold Jack with smiles each danger meets
    Weighs anchor heaves the log
    Trims all the sails belays his sheets
    And drinks his can of grog
