Searchme.com - both interesting and disturbing
« on: January 09, 2009, 09:27:38 PM »
Here's a 3D search site that's been around for a while called Searchme.com. Go there, key in your name or moniker and see what happens.

I found people I had been related to were dead (news to me!), not to mention a relative who's a very successful college baseball player. They don't just share my last name, Ridling, they're the sons and fathers/mothers of people I know! Apparently, I'm also wanted by the FBI, but they'll never find me, the rat b*stards!

You don't think they're also monitoring that site too  :-\

By the way, I sell the latest trend in tinfoil hats... :D

Why does this sound like a plug to the site?  :P

Btw last time I used this, the search results were horrible. Interface was slow. Previews weren't as zoomed and readable as the now dead Pagebull and it just seemed like you get more out of sites like Kart00 if you are into flash based search engines.
