For just $5 (US) per month we will check your website regularly, and warn you of any future broken links. Your website's visitors will thank you for it. [direct paypal link]

The broken links he sent were correct - so the email was pretty helpful, and I would consider it if it was a little cheaper. That's what I call good marketing.

things that make you go hmmm...

Two weeks after releasing this site to the general public, the Googlebot has paid a visit. It indexed my site for 2 days, and now this site is in the Google search results. The first search term that brought people to my site is tughlaqabad fort.

While I was studying Google's indexing of this site, I've discovered that the word "arnab" means two things: It's a name; and it's a word in Somalian or some other African language (like I had guessed in a previous weblog entry). What I'd really like to know is what "arnab" means in Somalian.

work and its rewards

I've been drowning my guilt of not studying in the frustration of developing extensions for PHP. I'm beyond the "Hello World" stage, but I have a very, very, long way to go to do anything substantial.

In other news, Kapil just informed me that we recieved, processed and delivered 2 orders for AdSystem in the last 48 hours. yay!
