Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So long story short, my homepage is set to google. I find it's actually pretty handy t hit the "internet" button on my keyboard and have it open a new webpage that defaults to google.
Tonight just before heading to bed, I decided to check my e-mail. So I hit said browser button on my keyboard. I'm greeted with google as is the norm. However while waiting for the page wherein I can log into my e-mail to load, I notice a button right next to "Google Search" labeled "I'm Feeling Lucky". I click on it as I've never seen this before.
I was greeted by a page that was pretty much the same except directly under the search field it contained this-
The "I'm Feeling LuckyTM" button automatically takes you to the first web page returned for your query.
An "I'm Feeling Lucky" search means less time searching for web pages and more time looking at them.
I immediately broke into laughter upon reading that because the first thought I had was that Google has included a kind of "death safe" Russian Roulette to their search engine. I'm not sure why this truck me as hilarious, perhaps because it's so completely unnecessary. Or maybe it's because of the occasional possibilty for hilariously bad results. Or maybe it's just the fact that right next to the button for a regular search there appears teh phrase "I'm Feeling Lucky".
In any case, just thought I'd share " title="" class="bbcode_smiley" />
