Re: Stract: Open Source Search Engine With Its Own Crawler and "Optics"

Interesting, they seem to have written their own crawler and everything, pretty impressive. Also the search engine works very well without JavaScript. The only thing I noted didn't work with JS is the ability to boost or discard domains using a GUI. But you can still write rules and have them work ...

Re: UNIX story in Junichi Masuda manga

Very interesting! I wonder which type of unix machine they were using. The IPSJ computer museum has a page on Unix machines in japan in the 1980s to early 2000s (https://museum.ipsj.or.jp/en/computer/unix/history.html).

UNIX story in Junichi Masuda manga
