Note:These pages make extensive use of the latest XHTML and CSS Standards. They ought to look great in any standards-compliant modern browser. Unfortunately, they will probably look horrible in older browsers, like Netscape 4.x and IE 4.x. Moreover, many posts use MathML, which is, currently only supported in Mozilla. My best suggestion (and you will thank me when surfing an ever-increasing number of sites on the web which have been crafted to use the new standards) is to upgrade to the latest version of your browser. If that's not possible, consider moving to the Standards-compliant and open-source Mozilla browser.

We’re Number 17!

Matt Mullenweg made it all the way to number 1 in a Google search for “Matt”, and made good on his promise to take down his web site, if only temporarily.

Curious, I decided to find out how I rank in a search for “Jacques.” Turns out that I’m number 17, following

  1. Jacques Villeneuve
  2. Brian Jacques
  3. Jacques Cartier
  4. Jacques Derrida
  5. Jacques Torres Chocolates
  6. Jean-Jacques Rousseau
  7. The Jacques-Edouard Berger Foundation
  8. Jacques Maritain
  9. Jacques Brel
  10. Jacques Cousteau
  11. Jacques Whitford Engineering
  12. Transat Jacques Vabre (a race from Havre to Bahia)
  13. Jacques Vapillon
  14. Jacques Delors
  15. Jacques Attali
  16. Jacques Tati

This is fairly remarkable, as I’ve heard of most of the other 16, whereas I’m pretty sure none of them have heard of me.

Unlike Matt, I promise not to take my website down in the unlikely event that I ever reach number 1.
