Fame! (The illusion of)

Every blogger gets to do that once in a lifetime (ahem, I mean "at least"): I searched for my firstname in search engines...

Surprisingly or not (depending on how much you know about web indexing techniques), I am famous, very very famous!

  • #1 François in the world out of about 6,450,000 on yahoo.com 88|
  • #2 François in the world out of about 3,310,000 on google.com 88|

What more could I ask for?

Real fame? nah... I just hope those rankings last long enough for me not to look stupid when you read this :roll: (Those rankings can actually change on a daily basis, so... yeah maybe cyberfame just works like real fame, one day you're at the top, the next day you're gone :|)

A: Because she refused to be involved in the presentation.

Q: Why was the font tag an orphan?
A: Because it didn't have a font-family.

Q: Why do CSS designers have too many children?
A: Because they employ lots of child selectors.

Q: Why was IE5's 3-metre wide cell in the insane asylum smaller than IE6's 3-metre wide cell?
A: Because the width of the cell included the padding.

Q: Why was the XHTML bird an invalid?
A: Because it wasn't nested properly.

(And I laughed a couple of times ;) )
