Google Suggest

Ned Batchelder notes the existence of the (very cool) Google Suggest and invites a little competition: how much of your name do you have to type before you’re the top link?
I have to type “stuart langr“, disappointingly (but there is a guy called Stuart Lang, so it’s not entirely unexpected). i only need “kryog” to get hits on my site—like Ned, I’m most puzzled by the order in which they show the suggested links.
Some other things: Microsoft appear to own “mi“, you have to go as far as “linu” to get Linux, Ubuntu are there with “ubu“, and “lugr” gets you LugRadio. Cool tool, Google guys.

I'm currently available for hire, to help you plan, architect, and build new systems, and for technical writing and articles. You can take a look at some projects I've worked on and some of my writing. If you'd like to talk about your upcoming project, do get in touch.
