A few weeks ago Ringwraith suggested we add Ray Liotta's December birthday to the Holiday Road. I am seriously considering it. I'm sure there will be little disagreement.

Another birthday we should consider is for our dear friend googlebot. He clocks more time on this site than anyone. He never says anything but he's here nonetheless. Perhaps we should designate a lurkers recognition day. We could call it "Dia de los Googlebot" or something like that. A day named after the ultimate GU lurker. Even if 'he' is more of an 'it' and it isn't so much alive as it mostly just exists. Anyhow that's what has been on my mind. I was thinking sometime in the summer. What are your thoughts? Also what font does Google use?

Yeah, he's a vital part of the community even if he tries his best to stay unnoticed. He deserves something.












Damn are we really this bored?

The boring thing would be that the googlebot, not is allowed to reply...



About the fonts... I think they using Times New Roman, not sure if they devloped their own, wouldn't surprise me.

but I remember that Mickm.com had a tutorial about it... .. . This is a link (just to clearify)

Google is using a slightly different version of Times that what is readily available on most photo editing programs. I may actually have to go on the net to get something that's closer to the real thing. If I don't find it that's cool. I'll just make do with regular Times.

"Dia del los Search Engines" then. I think I like "Dia de los Googlebot" more though. Catchier. If anyone wants to know why I'm using such a title, It's a take-off on the Mexican holiday "Dia de los Muertos" which means "Day of the Dead."

And no it has nothing to do with the movie about zombies. It's a day of remembrance of one's ancestors. In a way googlebot, archive.org and yahoo act as recalling tools for people looking up game tips online. So it fits in a way.

Okay just so we're all clear on this, just which search engine bots have been coming here? I know of googlebot and Archive.org. What others?

I try and watch that (or any for that matter) Youtube video and it says this: Hello, you either have JavaScript turned off or an old version of Adobe's Flash Player. Get the latest Flash player.

IDK what it means, all my sh*t auto-updated when I came home.

You know, now that I remember it I got the same message not too long ago when I was trying to watch a vid posted for a GTAIV trailer. I was using Firefox at the time.

I guess get the latest version and try it again.
