Design A Spider Friendly Site

To be successful in the search engines it’s important to design your web site with the spiders in mind. Using the latest in web page design is not generally the best way to go. Spiders don’t view web pages like humans do, they must read the HTML in the page to see what it’s about. Below you will find tips on how to best design your web site with search engines in mind.

Do not use frames at all. Some search engines cannot spider web pages with frames at all. For the other search engines that can, they can have problems spidering it and sometimes they too can’t index the web page. Do not only use image’s to link out. You should always use text links to link out to important content on your web site. Spiders can follow image links, but like text links more though.

Use external JavaScript files instead of using Java Script code in the HTML document, using Java Script in the HTML document will make the page size much larger. Using an external Java Script file to do the job will reduce page size and make it easier for both spiders and browsers to download the page. Using Cascading Style Sheets can reduce page size and making the download time much faster in most cases. It will allow the spider to index your web page faster and can help your ranking.

Avoid using web page creators such as FrontPage, Dreamweaver or a WYSIWYG editor. Software such as that will often times add scripting code that is not needed, making the page larger than it needed to be and making it harder to crawl. It will also add code that can’t be read by the search engines, causing the spider not to index the page or not index the whole web page. It is better to use standard HTML. Adding code that they can’t read or have a hard time to read can lead to major problems with your ranking.

It’s important to add a site map to your web site. Not only will this make it easier for internet surfers to get around your web site, but it will also allow spiders to find your site’s content easier and index your web page sooner. The site map should contain text links and not image links.

I highly suggest that you look at your web page with a Lynx browser because this is similar to how search engines will view your web page. There are other tools on the internet that will allow you to view your web page without a Lynx browser, but see a web page just like it, so you may want to check those out as well.

2023 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider Review

2023 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider Review – Italy’s bad-attitude baby supercar

The 2023 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider has a secret. It’s not particularly good at keeping it either. You see, this is a car that honestly doesn’t care if you have a problem with its ‘lack’ of power steering (demanding strength beyond strength when parking), or its ultra-wide door sills (that require you to fold your body like a jackknife to slide behind the wheel), or even its miniscule trunk (truly just a plastic bin tucked behind the motor that’s barely big enough to store the fussy fabric roof that you need to snap-and-tug on and off all on your own).

Once ensconced inside the car, you’ll quickly discover that Alfa Romeo’s ergonomics team was clearly only interested in keeping your gaze locked on the road ahead and your mind focused on the task at hand – that is to say, driving. Seat adjustability gets you closer or farther from the steering wheel, with a smidgen of rake thrown in to mollify taller individuals, but strangely, bolstering is minimal. An Alpine stereo deck is stuffed into the dash like an afterthought, a USB port hangs from underneath where you’d find a glove compartment on a ‘normal’ vehicle, and the automated manual transmission presents a four-button array splayed out on the center console that will confuse each and every valet unfortunate enough to pull Alfa duty. Forget a navigation system, because you’re already there. You’re driving.

Turn the (actual, physical) key in the ignition and the basic nature of the 4C Spider’s interior presentation is immediately wiped from your mind by the wave of repressed anger and furious aural energy unleashed by the 1.75-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. I’m not exaggerating when I say this is the best-sounding 4-cyl you can buy right from the factory, largely because the Sport exhaust on the options sheet entirely deletes any form of muffler from the equipment list. Even at idle, it stirs the blood to the point where mothers passing by on the sidewalk instinctively tug their children away from the car, neighbors instantly write off your friendship forever, and the attention of the local constabulary expands to include all but motorcycle cops, who simply give you the thumbs up on their way by.

A rush of expended hydrocarbons isn’t the only sound that greets you once you’ve fired up the hyperactive turbo mill. For reasons unknown, Alfa Romeo has also outfitted the 4C Spider with a piercing, high-pitched buzzer tuned to perhaps the only frequency capable of cutting through the cylinder chatter directly behind your head. Turn the car on – it chimes. Put it in reverse – it chimes. Get within 15 feet of an obstacle while parking – the banshee screech sounds loudly, then soft, then loudly once more. Face it: you’re in an on and again / off-again relationship with the 4C’s parking sonar, and you better figure out why it’s mad at you before you try slipping into the spot you can barely make out through the Plexiglas portal positioned between the car’s two blind-spot humps.

One would expect a car as primal as the Alfa Romeo 4C Spider to offer a traditional manual transmission, but instead it’s equipped with an intriguing dual-clutch automated manual unit that is controlled via the previously-mentioned console buttons in conjunction with steering-wheel mounted paddle shifters. The preferred modus operandi is as follows: once running, ignore the piercing buzzer, hit the ‘1’ button to select first gear, release the parking brake, push the ‘A/M’ button to put the car in manual mode, and then pounce on the accelerator. There’s no ‘creep’ built into the DCT – the car will roll forwards and backwards on a hill, just like most manual gearboxes with the clutch depressed – and there’s enough play in the programming to toy with the throttle and enhance the tailpipe symphony with the vehicle in gear without the danger that you’ll rocket into the vehicle sitting in traffic in front of you.

Should you wish to go for launch – well, you’d better hang on. In full flight, the 2023 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider’s 237 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque are a bit of a handful, squirting the car forward with glee and challenging you to keep up with the pace of its engine racing to the redline, where it helpfully barks and squawks against its limiter until you pull back on the right-hand paddle and send it sprinting through the next ratio in its six-speed box. Watch for the flash of yellow on the LCD gauge cluster, time your Playstation-honed fast-twitch finger muscles right, and you’re looking at a race to 60-mph in the low four-second range.

Once you’ve gotten straight-line speed out of your system, however, you’ll be primed to discover what the 4C Spider was really intended to do, and that’s shred your local canyon road / country-lane / race track with a level of smooth confidence equivalent to what you thought you had at your college mixers. Select ‘Dynamic’ from the vehicle’s drive mode toggle (it’s there beside ‘Normal’ and ‘All-Weather), and you’re treated to the most responsive version of the Alfa Romeo’s transmission and throttle, which are a perfect complement to its firm but not overly-stiff suspension tuning and, of course, the supreme feedback of its unassisted steering rack.

On a road course, I was shocked by how well the Alfa Romeo 4C Spider flowed through the corners, connecting one apex to the next with an elegant poise one would not expect from the frenetic nature of its power delivery. The 4C Spider doesn’t so much rotate in a corner as pirouette, teasing you with the balanced nature of its mid-engine chassis while still offering the availability of power oversteer should you enter too hot. What surprised me most during my session at Autodrome St-Eustache was how the 4C’s speed after exiting the tight esses leading to the track’s bowl turn was almost identical to its velocity at the end of the long front straight – the point at which one must brake to enter that very set of S corners. I’ve never driven a vehicle at ASE that’s been able to make that match before, and it only added to my delight in flogging the Spider.

There are certainly quicker and better all-around options at or below the $65,900 asking price of the Alfa Romeo – in fact, almost every sports car could be said to be more practical and easier to live with, long-term – but none of them are the 4C Spider. Whether that matters to you or not will go a long way in deciding just how many of these rough beasts, their hour come round at last, will find their way to customers across the country who are determined to vex their neighbors to nightmare and soothe their own high performance passions.

Black Widows Battle Their Even Deadlier Cousins In A Brutal Spider War

It can be pretty tough to be a bug, especially for spiders that have a not so great reputation. While black widow spiders (Latrodectus hesperus) and their venomous bites are a common fear for humans, spiders who call parts of the southern United States home have quite a bit to fear themselves. Brown widow spiders (Latrodectus geometricus) don’t seem to get along with their cousins from the same genus, and over the past few decades scientists have observed brown widow spiders increasingly displacing black widows. 

But like any family drama, it’s more complicated than fighting over food or habitat. A new study published March 13 in the journal Annals of the Entomological Society of America suggests that brown widow spiders seek out and kill nearby black widows for reasons that scientists are still trying to really understand.

[Related: Jumping spiders might be able to sleep—perchance to dream.]

“We have established brown widow behavior as being highly aggressive towards the southern black widows, yet much more tolerant of other spiders within the same family,” Louis Coticchio, a former zookeeper who specialized in venomous animals a University of South Florida undergraduate student who led the study, said in a statement. 

Scientists believe that brown widow spiders were native to Africa before being introduced to every continent except Antarctica. The black widows native to North America have two closely related species, the western black widow (Latrodectus hesperus) and the southern black widow (Latrodectus mactans).

While comparing growth rates and fertility, they saw that sub-adult brown widow females were 9.5 percent larger than black widows, and adult female brown widows reached reproductive maturity 16 percent earlier and were about twice as fertile as black widows. Brown widow males are smaller than their black widow counterparts, but become fertile in a shorter time.

[Related: These male spiders fling into the air to escape post-coital cannibalism.]

The team designed experiments that paired brown widow spiders in a contained habitat with related cobweb spider chúng tôi found that the brown widows were 6.6 times more likely to kill their roommates if they were southern black widows versus any other related species. 

While living with the red house spider, sub-adult brown widow females simply cohabitated with other females in 50 percent of pairings. The red house spiders killed and consumed the brown widows in 40 percent of the observed pairings. 

Brown widows peacefully cohabitated with triangulate cobweb spiders (Steatoda triangulosa) in 80 percent of pairings ,and they were killed in just 10 percent of the observed pairings. 

However, when sub-adult brown and black widow females were put together, the brown widows killed and ate the black widows in 80 percent of pairings. Adult black widows were killed in 40 percent of trials, but they defensively killed brown widows in 30 percent of trials, and simply cohabitated during the remaining 30 percent.

“We didn’t expect to find such a dramatic and consistent difference in the personalities of the brown widow and the black widow,” said co-author and biologist Deby Cassill, in a statement. “Brown widows are boldly aggressive and will immediately investigate a neighbor and attack if there is no resistance from the neighbor. For two bold spiders, the initial attack is often resolved by both individuals going to separate corners and eventually being OK with having a nearby neighbor. The black widows are extremely shy, counterattacking only to defend themselves against an aggressive spider.”

The team is still uncovering what is driving this aggression towards a closely related species, noting that invasive species can typically outcompete native species through fertility, growth, dispersal, or defenses against predators. 

“One question I would love to answer is how brown widows interact with other species of spiders, more specifically black widows in Africa, where brown widows are believed to have originated,” Coticchio said. “I would love to see if their behavior and displacement of black widows is something that they have adapted here in North America, or if this behavior is something they exhibit naturally even in areas where they have coevolved with black widows for much longer periods of time.”  

The Last Tinker: City Of Colors Review: A Perfectly Charming, Family Friendly Platformer

The Last Tinker looks like claymation, plays like a simple platformer, and is perfect to enjoy with the family (or by yourself).

There was a time in the late 90s or early 2000s when The Last Tinker: City of Colors would’ve been a blockbuster game. It was a time when mascot-driven platformers ruled consoles. Super Mario 64, Banjo-Kazooie, Rayman, Beyond Good & Evil, Crash Bandicoot, Jak and Daxter—they were everywhere.

And The Last Tinker, with its vaguely human protagonist and colorful claymation art style, would’ve been quite a spectacle.

The 3D platformer boom times are gone, but all that really means is that The Last Tinker hasn’t gotten the attention it deserves. And it deserves quite a bit of attention, because this is a great (if simple) game.


The Last Tinker looks like a kid’s game, and it could be a kid’s game. It’s definitely pretty simple as far as “platformers” go. In fact, I almost hate to strap that genre onto it because it’s not really a platformer. Jumping occurs more like Assassin’s Creed‘s free-running or Zelda‘s auto-jump—there’s no dedicated button for it. You just sort of reach the end of a platform and then leap off it onto the next one, or fall off if there’s nothing waiting.

This lends itself to very fluid, fast-paced animations and some clever grinding sections reminiscent of Jet Set Radio or some of the 3D Sonic games, but it also makes the game damn simple. If you’re coming to this expecting the challenge of even Mario 64 (not a terribly hard game) then you’re going to be disappointed. There are also a handful of easy puzzles to break up the pacing, but if you’re at all familiar with games they won’t exactly leave you scratching your head.

But The Last Tinker sort of lulls you into a rhythm that’s pleasant, if not difficult, and it ends up feeling like a miniature version of some bigger games. Combat even has a Batman: Arkham Asylum flow to it that I never would’ve expected, and there are the expected tributes to classic platformers—objects that explode into currency when hit, collectible hidden in corners, and a silent-but-still-somehow-emotive main character.

You play as the titular last of the Tinkers, Koru, a monkey-boy who lives in the multi-hued city of Colortown. Or at least, parts of it are multi-hued—the parts that aren’t infested by a bunch of racists.

The Red, Green, and Blue districts of Colortown used to live in harmony, but over time that’s collapsed and now all three districts live in big walled ghettos to keep the other two groups away. The only part of the city that’s still unified is the Market District, which is where Koru resides. If only there were some way of reuniting the city, perhaps through some sort of world-ending disaster…

Yeah, it’s not exactly the most complex story, nor the most veiled of analogies. It’s basically a kid’s game, after all. The way it’s all presented is charming though, with the different segments of the city featuring decidedly different vibes. The Reds are angry and warmongering so their district is all fire and spears, for instance, while the fearful Greens have covered every available surface in security cameras.

And I mean presented in the physical sense also. Colortown, and Tinkerworld in general, is a place built from craft materials. It’s paper, glue, cardboard, and paint. When people “talk” in their gibberish language, the words are written in chalk on floating cardboard speech bubbles.

You’re basically playing through a claymation film, like a technicolor version of Chicken Run. The aesthetic is definitely pulling most of the weight in this game, with charming octopuses and a sun that goes to sleep at night to become the moon and even a Bob Ross reference.

Bottom line

It’s just charming, okay?

If you’re tired of browns and greys, the drab color palette of most modern games, this is the perfect antidote to gently glide through over the course of a few nights. The Last Tinker‘s not difficult for an adult who’s reasonably familiar with games, but I can’t deny I enjoyed playing it.

Yes, I wish it was a real platformer instead of an auto-jump game, and I think the final boss needed tuning (or at least some checkpoints). This is one to toss on the shelf for the kids though, and then pull down late at night after they’ve gone to bed because damn it, you want to play too.

Hp Compaq 8000F Elite: An Environmentally Friendly Budget Pc In A Slim Package

Business-class computers like the HP Compaq 8000f Elite are a complicated bunch. Aimed at a market segment with particular maintenance and security needs, they tend to offer improved hardware and software functionality, while sacrificing elements of usability we’ve come to expect in consumer-oriented desktop PCs.

In our WorldBench 6 test suite, the 8000f Elite earned a score of 113, placing around the middle of the pack among budget desktops. The Veriton X480G and the Compaq 6005 Pro achieved slightly better scores of 120 and 128, respectively; another competitor, the Dell Optiplex 780 USFF, delivered a score of 116. The 8000f’s graphics performance was poor, too, but that much is expected on business systems armed with only integrated graphics.

Users’ opinion of the 8000f’s chassis will be largely dependent on their needs. It’s one of the smallest minitowers we’ve come across, edging into compact-PC territory. Nevertheless, it offers a full complement of expansion options: On the front, you’ll find four USB ports plus the headphone and microphone jacks, as well as the DVD burner. On the rear are six more USB ports, serial PS/2 ports for a mouse and a keyboard, the gigabit ethernet port, and the VGA and DisplayPort connectors. To keep things compact, the 8000f lacks an internal power supply–the power brick isn’t too bulky, but it is another element to consider.

HP has also made the 8000f Elite completely free of brominated flame retardants and polyvinyl chloride, from the internal components down to the included peripherals. Groups such as Greenpeace have targeted these fairly common materials for their harmful properties. With this design decision, as well as the 8000f’s 87-percent-efficient power supply (and the PC’s recyclable packaging), HP is making a more than subtle pitch to the environmentally conscious business manager.

As a business machine, the 8000f Elite also includes an array of business-oriented software. Sticking to the PC’s conservation theme is the HP Power Assistant: While it isn’t a particularly robust tool, it does give administrators a simple interface to adjust the machine’s power plans, setting up schedules to swap between power-intensive and power-saving modes, and setting the system to hibernate or standby mode.

HP has bundled a fairly humble set of peripherals with the 8000f, namely a simple keyboard and mouse that lack anything in the way of media keys or extra functionality. Like the 8000f itself, though, they are made without certain environmentally harmful substances; and as this is a business-class PC, media keys are less of a priority anyway.

Despite being outperformed by models that are priced more competitively, HP’s Compaq 8000f Elite remains a strong contender–particularly for businesses that examine their environmental impact as stringently as they do their security and their bottom line. And if space is a consideration, this system is both small and light, yet delivers ample performance. The lack of room inside the case, however, eliminates the opportunity for upgrades down the road, and the reliance on laptop RAM means that memory upgrades can be a bit pricier. And then there’s the disappointing 160GB of storage space.

Site Migrations And Planning For Holiday Site Code Freezes
