|The alphabet autocomplete game
||[Aug. 29th, 2012|12:41 am]
It makes me happy that we share some! Also, I was afraid it was weird and stalkerish that I autocompleted jcreed and zsparks' journals, so I'm glad I'm not the only one.
I'm kind of disappointed that unbaby.me works by matching keywords instead of doing machine vision. Although that might get computationally expensive.
Also the false positives would be hi-larious. What looks, from a classifier's perspective, kind of like a baby?
unbaby.me [contaminated by reading Chris's results first]
(contains two second-result cheats)
liarpedia.org [I haven't been here in ages; should really be lambda.soic]
verizon wireless [dang again]
Wow. Doing this on my phone (an iPhone, which is probably the source of all the apple.com subdomains) results in the weirdest results:
A - www.bridgeport.edu
B - www.bridgeport.edu
C - topics.nytimes.com
D - www.bridgeport.edu
E - arstechnica.com
F - www.bridgeport.edu
G - www.google.com
H - help.apple.com
I - arstechnica.com
J - en.m.wikipedia.org
K - (nothing)
L - my Instapaper "read later" bookmarklet
M - support.apple.com
N - topics.nytimes.com
O - www.bridgeport.edu
P - www.play.net
Q - (nothing)
R - www.google.com
S - support.apple.com
T - topics.nytimes.com
U - help.apple.com
V - arstechnica.com
W - www.google.com
X - penny-arcade.com
Y - topics.nytimes.com
Z - (nothing)
Doing this on my personal browser here at work (which is Safari) also results in weird stuff. It appears desktop Safari is extremely biased towards recency; basically everything here is either a tab I have open or something I visited yesterday.
A - apple.com
B - buzzfeed.com
C - comtruise.com
D - dygraphs.com
E - escapistmagazine.com
F - flooey.livejournal.com
G - google.com
H - hulu.com
I - ifoapplestore.com
J - jobs.apple.com
K - kungfugrippe.com
L - lindseykuper.livejournal.com
M - mail.google.com
N - ntr.ticketmaster.com
O - opinionator.blogs.nytimes.com
P - plus.google.com
Q - qwantz.com
R - reader.google.com
S - scienceandentertainmentexchange.org
T - theawl.com
U - unbaby.me (due to reading Chris' list)
V - vanguard.com
W - www.google.com
X - (nothing)
Y - youtube.com
Z - zdnet.com
I'll have to do this when I get home to get some real results, though so much of my browsing is done away from my computer nowadays that it's probably also full of odd junk.
Fun! Navel, meet gaze. Gaze, meet navel.
I don't have any Qs or Xs on my personal desktop (from which I work when I'm at home instead of in my office). May try my phone and work laptop later when I'm not crunching to get work done.
blogs.lawyers.com/wp-admin --> presumably will change soon, as I recently stopped blogging here
q --> nothing!
x --> Nothing!
The breakdown, if I'm counting right:
Pure procrastination/entertainment: 2
Used exclusively to complete work: 3
Used to find work or promote myself professionally: 3
Used for work and personal life (ex: google docs): 3
Friends/social sites: 3
Practical stuff for personal life: 5

I designed and wrote the alpha version of uoguest.uoregon.edu! I hope it worked?
Not particularly well, I'm sad to report. Although I was amused that I kept getting error code 666.

Error code 666 is not my doing. I was told it worked for the 2008 olympic trials, which is when I wrote it and what I wrote it for. I am sorry to hear that it has deteriorated over time.
Annotated $ for comics (10), @ for streaming time-wasters (6)
$ achewood.com - really? they never update anymore
coned.com - gas company
emc2-hyrule.tumblr.com - really, chrome? I remember going here like once
$ oglaf.com - c.c
@ reddit.com - big effng surprise here
I wonder how many of these are uniquely identifying.
