Domain Scammer: Domain Names International (DNIDOMAINMARKET.COM)

Domain Names International (InTrust Domains, DNIDomainMarket.com) has been repeatedly spamming me with emails about domains similar to ones I own. The emails come from various random domains, but when going to the domain, you are immediately redirected to dnidomainmarket.com. On the home page of their website they advertise how the BBB says they can be trusted. This general shadiness makes me not want to follow the opt out link. Also googling makes it fairly obvious that the optout will not work anyway.

I would really suggest that others receiving this spam, click the link below to the BBB and file another advertising complaint against the company. Also reporting to spam cop or similar places.

Manifest Search: A Common Lisp Documentation Search Engine

A common complaint from a co-worker is not being able to find relevant library functionality. We have libraries that do some tasks well, but if you haven’t used it before, how are you to know that it is there. More over, how do you find what you are looking for from all of the available utility libraries currently loaded.

After seeing Peter Seibel’s Manifest screencast. I was struck by the idea that you could index all the doc strings to provide a powerful search tool. I dont know about powerful yet, but this idea has turned into at least a search tool: Manifest-Search. This is the product of one days hacking and so should not be construed as the end-all-be-all common lisp search tool, however, it is at least a step in that direction.

I would like to eventually get this integrated more fully with both quicklisp and manifest, but that is all in the future. I think it would be amazing to search for functionality I need, and get documentation for a library I have not yet installed, but is distributed by quicklisp.
