Am I just being dense? Tonight's google.com page header graphic (google.com) is a cool fractals tribute, but I have no clue why. Usually if you click on the graphic, you get some related pages, but tonight the search (google.com) is just leading me to more fractal images. All of which is spiffy, except I'm left thinking I'm missing something. Is today Mandelbrot's Birthday or something??? What have I missed???

Hmm, using THAT VERY SAME google.com I found the following in like two seconds.

http://www-gap.dcs.st-and.ac.uk/ ~history/Mathematicians/ Julia.html

Gaston Maurice Julia
Born: 3 Feb 1893 in Sidi Bel Abbs, Algeria


and also

http://www.encyclopedia4u.com/g/gaston-julia.html

Gaston Maurice Julia (1893-1978) was a French fractal mathematician who devised the formula for the Julia set. His works were popularised by French mathematician Benoit Mandelbrot, and the Julia and Mandelbrot fractals are closely related.

Julia was born in February 3 1893
...

And so on. Such is the breathtaking magic of using a search engine (such as GOOGLE.COM).



The only thing I enjoy more than doing the crossword puzzle is actually finishing it.

Wow, the fact that I was USING google.com in the first place MIGHT make one think that I MIGHT have thought to avail myself of the breathtaking magic of using a search engine (such as GOOGLE.COM). Wait... I DID! Perhaps you might deign to share with me exactly what search keywords (The google response page URL, please. Remember how stupid I am.) got you those 2 links. I didn't (still don't) see either of them in the first 5 pages of results that I get.

Thanks for the informational content though.

Your search was different. Yours was "julia fractals" while the other one was "gaston julia", which pulled up the secondary information. Not sure how that happened, but that's what went on.

My search was actually the original "julia fractals" that Google provided, but instead of searching in "images" I searched in "Web" and I added today's date, "february 3." I know, I'm a genius.

I'm not sure if it was there before, but I notice now there's also an ALT tag attached to the image reading "Gaston Julia's Birthday" for the exceptionally feeble-minded.

Apparently, Google crashed the servers of the #1 result returned from searching for 'julia fractal' because of their tribute yesterday. Click Here (searchenginelowdown.com)

Looks ALSO like the link you just provided there, along with a slashdotting (slashdot.org), is providing them with the same problem.

I dunno, I still kinda think most people would KILL for those kind of "problems." ;-)

How do you think I found out about that link?

We need to come up with some reason to submit a thread to /.. Then we can test your servers...

No. They won't live and the Slashdot crowd is about 95% assholes when it comes to wrestling.

Spoken as part of the 5%.



Willful ignorance of science is not commendable. Refusing to learn the difference between a credible source and a shill is criminally stupid.

You might find this link interesting if you like the google graphics.
