Search - "search engine"
An unfriendly reminder: if you don’t know how to use a fucking search engine to at least try and find solutions to your problems, get your sorry ass the fuck out of here!
I reiterate: if you can’t utilise a search engine any better than the average gorilla, you’re an asswipe with no fucking right to even consider getting within miles of devs, you fucktard!6
1. Apply to as mant jobs as possible daily on dice/linkedin/indeed
using keyword resumes customized by scrapping
2. Filter out low-effort crap companies and filter out recruiters.
3. Post "dice/indeed/linkedin daily decrapified."
Tada! Fewer time-wasters during the job hunt.
4. Bonus: turn into a search engine.
5. Daily double round: turn crap listings and quality listings into AI training sets. Incorporate into search engine.
If industry can use bullshit hiring filters, we can use application filters!7
Who’s better at releasing unfinished/half baked projects that are eventually killed in the span of 5 years or less?
In this corner, weighing in at 264 killed projects, undefeated in search engine industry - Google!
And, in this corner, weighing in at 73 killed projects, the murdered of Nokia, Windows RT and soon to (probably) be Surface Duo and Windows 11 on ARM - Microsoft!
I personally think it’s Microsoft - when they do, they kill it in a spectacular way.9
Why does Google have to buy big billboard ads at the bus stops to convince people to use Google search?
Did Google finally realize that despite being the best search engine, many of their results are still pretty shitty?
Or do they merely want to distract from the anti-FAANG (don't) be evil discussion?5
Does anyone know of some project that makes emoji render as emoticons (:D) or text (:troll:)? I would find something like that useful because emoticons look better than emoji and many emoji are so obscure that I find myself pixel peeping when I try to comprehend what they are trying to represent. Sometimes there's no other way to find out what an emoji is supposed to represent than copy-pasting it to a search engine. Very convenient.
I'm interested if anyone knows how to achieve this on any platform.8
Okay Google, the "missing" info is missing an option to include the missing search keywords again. Why do you think I used those keywords in the first place?
Can't we get a decent search engine in 2022?6
200 searchable records (heavily searched and essential to the app) kept getting deleted from their index on our search engine.
we couldnt figure out why, but we wanted to resolve this quickly next time it happens so we got them back up, duplicated the index, and whenever we see they got deleted we resync them from the replica.
Eventually i found that there was a piece of code that updates the index by deleting everything from it and uploading everything back but it was buggy in doing the latter.3
let's say i want to host my own local search engine, i have the application ready.
now i want to activate my crawlers to scrap and index the web.
would i be in hot water for doing this? is there any implementation level rule that i can check other than robots.txt?
any thoughts or inputs on the subject other than it being a huge waste of time and resources :D.2
can you use elastic search as a search engine for your app ?
because i see several weak points in it.
the increased latency after every bulk uploading of docs, meaning u cant ensure fast response time for users
the inability to add synonyms without closing the index ? this is either downtime or ill have to replicate an index to update the original and then switch back to it !!
idk i feel i either must have wrong info or elastic is very inefficient. I might be wrong, not too experienced with it so if I am let me know of some good resources and workarounds that helped you3
