  • Google search leads to Gates of 'hell'

    Could Bill Gates really be the devil?

    Interesting what some folks ask Google to do and the answers it gives...

    excerpt: "Currently, if you type "go to hell" into the Google search engine -- you have to use the quotation marks -- the No. 1 search result is Microsoft Corp.'s home page. (For what it's worth, comes up as No. 3, and the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill comes in at No. 6.)

    Why search engines sometimes "boo boo"

    I fail to see how this is a "mistake" ...growing up in Raleigh, NC (and a lifelong North Carolina STATE fan!), we always knew UNC-Chapel Hill was the location of hell....hence the oft used "Chapel Hell" phrase! ...and AOL?...well everyone knows that's Beelzebub's preferred ISP!

      Greg, when you're not painting, do you happen to work for Google?

      Sounds like Arizona's ASU vs UofA rivalries....

        Interesting link CJ. I wonder if Martha Stewart had a place in there.

          Oh that is so funny. CJ you found a winner.

            I'm sure if she does, it's decorated "very tastefully".

              I wonder if Google changed their search algorythm. I just tried "go to hell" both with and without quotes and got 170,000 hits, but didn't see Microsoft or Gates in the first several pages. What I got seemed to be ligitimate references to "hell" in a religious context or in some cases quotes of one big wheel telling another to "go to hell" - one refereed to Mugabe telling Blair where to go.

              Still it was interesting and I found some useful stuff for later....

              Take care,

                Margaret -- you're right! Microsoft, AOL, and North Carolina-Chapel Hill no longer show up on the Google search. I'm not surprised that they made some changes after getting all the publicity.

                uh, oh! Are you arming yourself with epithets to use on RetouchPRO?

                  No CJ, RetouchPro is safe, I won't be peppering my posts with purple prose.

                  I was actually thinking about different religions and what they stand for. "go to hell" yielded many hits for religious sites.

                  Take care,

                    Religions -- comparative info (I haven't researched these pages, but they appear to have links to many of the world's faiths. (They also appear to ask for donations on many of their pages.)

                    Rutgers Univ.

                    or find more by using Google for "comparative religion"

                    (You probably already have done these, but I had to make another post -- my post count was 666 and in SOME religions, that's not good.

                    Whew!! Now I'm up to 667...

                      Thanks for the links CJ, I will follow those up.

                      I'm glad you got over the 666 dilema. That would not be good

                        Dave Hill processing, close or no cigar?

                        This is my first post to this site and I'm still quite new to photography and Photoshop work.

                        Some people on another forum told me that this pic reminded them a little of Dave Hill's work. I didn't know who he was until I googled him.

                        I was never able to get Dave Hill for a RetouchPRO LIVE show, but this is perhaps the next best thing.

                        For all the detective work being done here on RP trying to deconstruct his technique, the answer seems to be deceptively simple: thousands of dollars, a dispiriting amount of photographic...

                        Okay, I admit that I'm late to the Dave Hill party. But honestly I didn't get it until I saw this page.

                        What really impressed me is how used every method known to man to manipulate your focus - selective color...the feeling of movement..sharpening/blurring. And he does this over sharpened...

                        Dave Hill Effect!!
                        by longside1
                        Hi guys,

                        This is my first post on this forum so go easy!

                        After noticing all the attention being paid to the one and only Dave Hill, I thought i would have a go at recreating his effects.

                        Please let me know what you think!
