Wildly Inapropriate Google results [SFW]

Is it just me or is something wrong with Google sometimes. I found myself searching Google to see if it was possible to restart the ALG process on a Juniper SRX router. These are the results that came up. The first 2 pretty normal, expected even, but then it just starts getting weird.

Site Redesign

Hi everyone. I’ve decided to do a complete site redesign and simplify things a little bit. I’ve found some renewed interest in keeping this site alive and vibrant in recent weeks and I want to keep it about the content.  I look forward to putting up some quality content on a regular basis again. Please let me know what kind of content you want to see from me, Reviews, Previews, hardware hacks, software hacks, how-to’s, instructional videos or something else I’m not thinking of just let mo know on twitter @liamm

Google Wave First Impressions

I was lucky enough to receive a Google Wave invitation in the second round of invites google sent out.

After the initial excitement of being one of the lucky invitees wore off I lent a more critical eye to what Google’s touted as an Email replacement.

So far to me it’s looking a lot like a combination of Instant Messenger, MySpace, IRC and WhiteBoard. I’m not seeing the Email replacement so far for one reason and one reason only. There’s no way to add someone to a wave without adding them to your contact list (At least that I’ve found so far in my incessant searching).

To me this is a deal breaker for an Email replacement, especially if you send a lot of messages to people once and then never need to contact them again. I can see the contact list getting WAY out of control. Hopefully this will be changed in the final release.

Other than that I can see Wave being incredibly useful for anything that requires a lot of back and forth or collaboration.
