Thanks; I was wondering why my foot hurt. :)

Google does that spidering at night, right? I wonder if that's the source of some of the performance issues in the wee hours.

For kicks I put in "Steve Jobs" and "Bill Gates" - Jobs lost by a slim margin :rolleyes:

I'm not sure... Could be.

I'm not finding the answer at google.com, but I'm still looking.

Right now most of the problems I'm having with the site are related to the adservice.

Hey, I kick ass (http://www.googlefight.com/index.php?lang=en_GB&word1=yellow&word2=non-yellow) too! :)

In the meantime, this GoogleFight web page can be fun! :)

What exactly is it calculating?

The amount of Google search hits.

Some of the results are very surprising. I'm guessing that its counting web pages indexed by each or something like that. So I tried a few that might be counterintuitive.

Apple beats Dell (http://www.googlefight.com/index.php?lang=en_GB&word1=Apple&word2=Dell)

computers beat sex (http://www.googlefight.com/index.php?lang=en_GB&word1=sex&word2=computers)

programming beats sex (http://www.googlefight.com/index.php?lang=en_GB&word1=programming&word2=sex)

While the first one might be reasonable, even just counting the number of pages devoted to the rise and fall of Apple, the last two are surprising (given the numbe of pages devoted to the latter).

I can't believe I spent a half hour at this page when I have so much stuff to do.
and yesterday I was wasting time with this YaGoohoo!gle search engine.
Thanks for the much needed distraction ;)

Paris Hilton beats Catherine Zeta-Jones (http://www.googlefight.com/index.php?lang=en_GB&word1=Paris+Hilton&word2=Catherine+Zeta-Jones). :eek:

RE: Paris vs. Catherine Z. ....

I'm not to sure i disagree... On the "Class" end Zeta-Jones hands down... But I recall seeing CZJ somewhere and she looked absolutely dreadful!!! So much so I wouldn't have given her a second glance.... While Paris looks OK most of the time, to me she just looks strange somehow....

And of course, Paris is all surface flash and porn video fame.... So I would give the nod to CZJ as well.

There's no accounting for taste, one way or the other.....

Not surprising. It's just like "Windows" vs. "Mac OS." You'll get more Windows hits because there are more users of Windows, much as there are more users of Paris Hilton. And you gotta admit, her interfaces seem to offer unlimited and easy connectivity. Like Windows, you have to watch out for viruses.

Well yeah, but that ways no fun. Windows XP beats Mac OS X that way to.

What's the fun in that? (http://www.googlefight.com/index.php?lang=en_GB&word1=%22mac+os+x%22&word2=%22windows+xp%22)

This is closer to a fair and comparable fight:

http://www.googlefight.com/index.php?lang=en_GB&word1=catherine+zeta+jones&word2=elizabeth+hurley

And it is interesting that the results are mixed, as would be my own choice, if in a parallel universe I were blessed with such a choice.
