Google use Windows For Docs & Linux For Spreadsheets

December 10, 2006

In The Name Of Allah

I think Google use Windows for thier Google Doc’s because

the url is not case sensitive

This is a sample of word “Writly” link

http://docs.google.com/Doc?id=2c79n2g

If us change it to

http://docs.google.com/doc?id=2c79n2g

It still works

on the contrary

This is a asample link for spreadsheet

http://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=51694

If u change it to http://spreadsheets.google.com/ccC?key=51694

It won’t Work and will give you

Not Found

Error 404

But google integrate the two products well

Mind Hacks (Tips & Tricks for Using Your Brain)

February 16, 2006

Mind Hacks
Tips & Tricks for Using Your BrainThe brain is a fearsomely complex information-processing environment–one that often eludes our ability to understand it. At any given time, the brain is collecting, filtering, and analyzing information and, in response, performing countless intricate processes, some of which are automatic, some voluntary, some conscious, and some unconscious.

Cognitive neuroscience is one of the ways we have to understand the workings of our minds. It’s the study of the brain biology behind our mental functions: a collection of methods–like brain scanning and computational modeling–combined with a way of looking at psychological phenomena and discovering where, why, and how the brain makes them happen.

Want to know more? Mind Hacks is a collection of probes into the moment-by-moment works of the brain. Using cognitive neuroscience, these experiments, tricks, and tips related to vision, motor skills, attention, cognition, subliminal perception, and more throw light on how the human brain works. Each hack examines specific operations of the brain. By seeing how the brain responds, we pick up clues about the architecture and design of the brain, learning a little bit more about how the brain is put together.

Mind Hacks begins your exploration of the mind with a look inside the brain itself, using hacks such as “Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation: Turn On and Off Bits of the Brain” and “Tour the Cortex and the Four Lobes.” Also among the 100 hacks in this book, you’ll find:

  • Release Eye Fixations for Faster Reactions
  • See Movement When All is Still
  • Feel the Presence and Loss of Attention
  • Detect Sounds on the Margins of Certainty
  • Mold Your Body Schema
  • Test Your Handedness
  • See a Person in Moving Lights
  • Make Events Understandable as Cause-and-Effect
  • Boost Memory by Using Context
  • Understand Detail and the Limits of Attention

Steven Johnson, author of “Mind Wide Open” writes in his foreword to the book, “These hacks amaze because they reveal the brain’s hidden logic; they shed light on the cheats and shortcuts and latent assumptions our brains make about the world.” If you want to know more about what’s going on in your head, then Mind Hacks is the key–let yourself play with the interface between you and the world.

Google hidden results

January 29, 2006

Google may have hidden results in thier search reply

for example

when you search for site:wordpress.com

using the next query

http://www.google.com/search?q=site:wordpress.com

it display only 978 (at time being) though it claims to have 1,630,000 results
Results 901978 of about 1,630,000 from wordpress.com for . (0.35 seconds)

Thus

my blog was removed this week from google results after it was the first result for the query “ibrahim hamza”

http://www.google.com/search?q=ibrahim+hamza

this may mean

some nodes of was ignored in displayed results

give wordpress.com low priority in serach results (upon blogger competition 😉 )

at end competition make all do thier best in thier field
