There’s a couple of new website features and a couple of bug fixes on the site now.
First, the bug fix. The calendar at the right mostly works (the month selections don’t really work yet).
Now the features. The new search box at the left is interactive. As you type in a search term, the highest ranked results show up in the column underneath. For the full list of results, you can still hit a carriage return and get to the search page.
Second, each document on the site has a star-rating system open to all visitors. When visiting a document (i.e. the url to the document looks something like: http://www.carneyweb.com/document/show/30), at the bottom of the document there’s a set of 5 stars. Please click on the number of stars that you think the document deserves. This is intended to be a community rating system.
Coming soon, a tag cloud
How cool is this!
Rubinstien writes “A mineralogist at London’s Natural History Museum was contracted to help identify an unknown mineral found in a Serbian mine. While he initially thought the miners had discovered a unique compound, after its crystal structure was analyzed and identified the researcher was shocked to find the material already referenced in literature. Fictional literature. Dr. Chris Stanley, from the BBC article: ‘Towards the end of my research I searched the web using the mineral’s chemical formula — sodium lithium boron silicate hydroxide — and was amazed to discover that same scientific name, written on a case of rock containing kryptonite stolen by Lex Luthor from a museum in the film Superman Returns … I’m afraid it’s not green and it doesn’t glow either — although it will react to ultraviolet light by fluorescing a pinkish-orange.'”
