More Google Vanity

Yeah, yeah. So apparently I have big feet:
There's a woman called Niko Silvester who seems to have left articles in absolutely every website I've visited. Eclectic ain't the word. She also wrote an extremely useful article on sword development that I drew upon for my BSc Archaeology lecture last summer. It would be nice to have that kind of an online footprint, and be active in some many e-locations (and yes, she has a blog)...

(Quote from here.) I knew I had crap all over the web--most of which is copies of my sword article . . . And, even better, said article was "extremely useful." Hee hee. Okay, back to work before my head gets so big it explodes. I need my brain for thinking with, and it's so hard to pick grey matter out from between the keys.

(And OMG, someone referenced me in a research paper!! Here. Watch out for skull shrapnel and flying brains!)

(Okay, only one more thing, if you google "Nico Silvester" nothing relevant comes up, but it asks you, "did you mean Niko Silvester? Heh. So anyone who knows me as Nico and decides to google me--not that anyone would, but you never know--might get very confused. Must remember to add alternate spellings of my name (ones I actually use, I mean) to the meta tags of all my various pages . . .)

Anyone who has been with you buying shoes know you have big feet. And I've always said you have a big head. ;-)

Okay, enough sisterly teasing. That's pretty cool that you're being quoted all over the globe, maybe it will help getting a book published. After 10 years on the web, it would be pretty surprising if you weren't referenced in a few places.

That's cool, Niko. I admit it - I Google myself sometimes, as well. Most of the references are to my defunct Sir Richard Francis Burton web site, but there is also another Rowena Hart in New Zealand who is an internationally-renowned weaver.

After the Master's is over I'm going to have to put together a new web site. Maybe I can get some design advice from ya...

Hwah hah! I am the evil overlord!

I am also the only Niko Silvester I've found yet (and the only Nico Silvester, too).

Or something. Not sure how much web design advice I can give--but we do start that next in computer class. Mostly basic html (which I know not too badly) and css (which I've not done before and am very much looking forward to). It's about time I updated my website(s), too.

Oh, there's no doubt about it - I did find it useful. ;) (The lecture was actually an attempt to pick out real-world influences on the sword design in Jackson's Lord of the Rings).
So, ta very much.

Hey, thanks. That's very, very cool. I'd have loved to have heard the lecture.
