the interweb hates me

oh man. its pathetic. *moan* *bitch* *moan*

my interweb projects so far have all been jokes, no-go-zones, digital wastelands, with just the occasional search-engine-bot passing through. [at least the bots never failed to show up…] all failures, ’til recently, finally, when a project of mine started to pick up some nice traffic. but then, what do you know, *bam*, the “interweb” killed it.

i am talking about GoogleGuessingGame.net.
it went quite well and was alot of fun – before image.google.com decided to go all gay weird…

GoogleGuessingGame relied on image.google searches to create and later solve the image puzzles. a few days ago, all of a sudden, the search result pages have become totally unstable, shuffeling the result pages around eachtime.

maybe, just maybe, this could have something to do with the fact, that the game was playing with a “flaw” of sorts in the image.google engine. i mean, there is of course no reason that a given search term should return the same results eachtime. [but it always did, up until recently…]
and then maybe it did not help that yahoo took the game into its “whats new?” latest addition section…

but lets neither get grandiose nor paranoid here…
fact is that the game is not working anymore and this makes me quite sad …
