Haunted Mansion turns 40

Hard to believe that Walt Disney's Haunted Mansion is turning 40 years old, actually its the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland that turns 40.

Many people don't know that the Disneyland opened its doors the Haunted Mansion was still being developed. Walt Disney was undecided on how to implement the Haunted Mansion as a ride. The Imagineers did a great job creating a memorable ride.

If your a Haunted Mansion fan you should check out Extinct Attractions, they have a really good walk through DVD. 

I am looking forward to visiting the Haunted Mansion next month and seeing other sites in Southern California such as, Mann's Chinese Theater, Universal Studios and the Hollywood Walk of Fame. This should be a fun trip!

Bing or Google?

Should you Bing or Google? That's the new question that everyone is asking, or at least that what Microsoft might have you believe that everyone is asking.

Looking at my website server log file for the last few months I can see that Bing searches has increase, but Google is still the dominate search and that's how most internet users find this website.

The one "big" advantage of using Bing is if your looking for Microsoft technology. Say, for example, your looking for information on "AlwaysVisibleControl" (An Ajax control for .Net) you'll have better results using Bing than Google. Google finds 3,660 hits, while Bing returns 5,330.

While Bing results might be impressive, its not the numbers that matter for most users, what matters to them is the quality of the search results returned. Most users won't bother with checking for the information in all the records returned.
