Dan Appleman takes the .NET focused custom search engine idea one step further by grabbing a great domain name for his search engine. Now why didn’t I think of that! Sometimes that’s all it takes between a search engine that will get used alot (his) and one that won’t (mine). I’d be happy to throw my support over to his, though I’m keeping my baby. The one key difference is I plan to leave my search engine open for others to contribute sites. Perhaps the two will complement each other.
And no, the domain name is not the only reason. This guy is Dan Appleman after all! He wrote the Visual Basic Programmer’s Guide to the Win32 API which allowed me to feel like a real programmer despite using VB back in the day. For this, I owe him a debt of gratitude as I was thus equipped to stand up to the C++ snobs.
Now we just need someone to help spruce up the logo.
