cloudNotes is up and running!

cloudNotes

…a unique platform for any kind of notes…

The first version of cloudNotes is now available. A project that aims to complement with the best possible way TeacherFinder. Two years of hard work, dedication and endless late night coding, but worth it all the way! A tremendous experience that resulted into a clean design, a novel architecture and a secure cloud-based platform, which is built on top of so many different technologies.

TeacherFinder got a facelift

Recently, I was working on facelifting TeacherFinder (TF). Tonight, I uploaded the new version which includes a better look & feel, together with some updated features for the search engine.

The majority of the changes were focused on optimizing the respond time for the requested queries. The searches are now performed a little bit faster, making searching on TF much easier. Finally, the visibility for classified ads was further improved and a number of statistics with regards to the TF visitors became available.

DuckDuckGo, using it almost for a year now.

DuckDuckGo, the minimalistic search engine

I started using https://duckduckgo.com about a year back, when I was looking for a good alternative. Duckduckgo is not more than it says that it is! A simplistic, but yet powerful and extensible (via DuckDuckGo Hacks) search engine. An engine that comes with the motto: “We believe in better search and not tracking.” and seems to promote users’ privacy. Explaining how our information flows around, without our consent, creating business revenues.

In general, although that the presented search results are not and can’t be as rich as of other engines, I still made it my default engine. With the provided !Bang I have everything I need for a sufficient and efficient search.

Reasons that I think someone could give it a try:

  1. DontTrack
  2. DontBubble
  3. DuckDuckGo Privacy Policy
  4. …certainly more…
