Re: Divide and rule

"Have you ever tried searching for "gimp" from a school internet connection?"

Have you? I just did, using DDG. All the schools I tried[0] brought up GNU Image Manipulation Program related links, until the very bottom of page two (wiktionary.org: "To wrap or wind (surround) with another length of yarn or wire in a tight spiral, often by means of a gimping machine, creating 'gimped yarn', etc."). Seven results down on page three brought up mersenne.org (Great Internet Mersenne Prime Search), the rest was about the photo editor. Page four was all the photo editor.

I didn't go past page four. Most folks don't go past page two ...

[0] Stanford, Berkeley, SJ State, SF State, Santa Rosa JC, Foothill JC, Sonoma Valley High School, Palo Alto High School. All the results were identical.
