Monday 15 August 2005 — This is almost 18 years old. Be careful.
I was helping a friend navigate the Xlibris web site: we were trying to find guidelines for formatting a poetry manuscript. After doing it the hard way (following links) for a while, I figured I would try their search for “poetry”. I was flabbergasted to see these results returned:
Search Results for ‘poetry’
Please note: if you are searching for a specific book or author, you should search in the bookstore
and so on. What year is this, 1993? Forget the relevant content of the pages with the search term highlighted, can’t we even get the titles of the pages? I did another search (I forget for what phrase) that returned “index.asp.bak” as one of the choices!
As a matter of fact, they seem so smart as to prevent this specific .bak file from being downloaded. Anyway, it stays a rather outdated search page...
