Iceland Metasearch

Just had a talk with www.ilectric.com's developer. It's actually a way better search engine than it looks at first glance. It metasearches all the major engines, and uses weighted cross-ranking them for superior relevancy, taking the strengths of each (breadth, depth, relevancy) ... and combining them into one search. There's a lot of metasearches, but this one's actually got some logic behind it, and he's working on making it better. You have to scroll past amazon results first (annoying) - but he's working on it (or at least he told me he'd work on it). If he ever does work on it, i might even use it. He told me about his hidden Evil Search, not really an easter egg, but cute.

Yay, I'm going to Iceland in mid-August! Renting a jeep, gonna see lava fields, ice sheets, and will probably fall in a crevasse, or get killed in a snowmobile accident. Packing a brand-spanking-new 5 megapixel Minolta DiMAGE 7i for the trip with a couple 1 GB IBM Microdrives... so you can see whether that camera sucks by visiting this site in September. But... my god.... what's fashionable to wear on a glacier?!?
