I’m trying to find a part-time job at the moment, and want to save some money so tend to stay at home… Umm, it’s not good, I should be more active! Maybe I should try planting at least one seed/day.
By the way, I started to use a Firefox plug-in called “feedly“. I really like it! It re-format the feeds from your google reader to “magazine site” look…so
Actually the change it makes is not that complicated, it’s just about things like font, margin, size, it’s so simple! But these small changes make articles much more readable. I think feedly itself has some problems of usability, but still it’s much better than Google Reader! It makes you realise the importance of layout.
I tried to use searchWiki by google yesterday!
So what you need to do is just logging in to google account, and you will find some unfamiliar links next to the result of search. One is to “pick up” and one it to “delete” the result.
Now we had a question. It looks this feature works only for exact the same query. Which means, even if you delete one of the results for a query “noodle”, when you try “noodle Japanese”, the deleted result comes up again. …isn’t it a bit irritating?
So our main opinion was “well….I wouldn’t use this.” Now the next question. What is this feature for, then? ….Google, isn’t it?
And another question. With this feature, you also can comment on the results.
These “pickup”, “delete”, “comment”, it looks all your action is published to all over the world compulsorily. For example, when you delete a result, it also shows “Bob and Jane deleted this result”, and by clicking “All notes for this searchWiki”, you can preview comments by others. Also, I’m not sure if it’s bug or not, but my test comment remains there despite I deleted it. Isn’t it annoying for the website which was used as test? Now the result for query “google” is full of test comments at the moment.
To be honest, I don’t like this feature. First of all, which is the concept of this feature, “Personal customisation tool” or “Let’s edit the result together! (=wiki)” ? To me, it looks a bit mixed and confused. At least, I assume everyone wants the option to turn if off…
Thinking like that, I tried another query but the feature doesn’t work…??????
I’m enjoying Radiohead on big volume now.
An annoying week finally ended. Unknown bugs and errors, working for 33hours without sleeping, argueing with sales reps…Sorry I can’t reply to your messages. I don’t have much energy on weekdays…
Well, now I’m using iTunes but…I can’t see the reason, perhaps the recent update, but it changes its ganre into Japanese words. I mean, it changes
“Rock” to “ロック”（katakana, Japanese)
I changed the language setting to “English” and now it looks OK.
Is it a bug? Or software’s specification? Isn’t it annoying a bit?
