I wondered what would receive the top Google PageRank score for the phrase “click here.” Unsurprisingly the first page is mostly software download links. But of note is that I’d never heard of one of the top hits (XE’s Universal Currency Converter), and that Mapquest made the front page.

- it’s the official host of Ruby on Rails
- If you log into the shell with Putty, emacs makes a great way to get around
- OK three things! It’s got a great web interface (“webmin”) for setting up cron jobs
- OK four things! The TextDrive forums are great. And there’s this one admin (Jason) who seems to be helpfully answering everyone’s questions. If your question isn’t answered, you can ask the admins directly (this is called “submitting a ticket”) – when I did this they got back to me within a day. Awesome!
