So Cuil had lots of visibility because of their "data corruption" , showing "wrong" images to people.

However it seems like they still haven't cleaned up their mess.

Somehow they manage to place Geert Vanderkelen's picture in the search results for me.
Not the other way around however.

Well.. at least it isn't what they used to show :)

So Geert , if someone ever runs up to you and says "Hi Kris" , you know where they got the picture from :)

I got Interviewed

Some people obviously think I`m still interresting enough to interview

Reminds me of my first interviews over a decade ago .. I`m still being remembered by one of my famous quotes back then rougly translated to "those toddlers steal my bandwith" , when being asked about how the growing userbase of the KULeuven PC rooms in the Dekenstraat influenced my network usage :) (Think 1994 ish :))

But the acutal news is that Profoss is coming closer and closer .. and you should now Register!
So all you Drupal and MySQL folks out there.. this is your chance to learn about virtualization !
