    Does my test site work for you?

    I'm still struggling to get spider.my back online as a search engine. I have a development version online at test.spider.my - I'd be grateful for any comments. The crawl is currently very small - fewer than 500,000 pages (hard to say for sure, and currently not crawling) - so 'ranking' is a bit haphazard.

    Besides the search, I'd be interested to know what you think of the features 'inspired by' a well-known search engine, such as the in-search-box calculator (not actually very good, and right at the bottom of the pile for enhancements) and the currency coverter - try a search like:

    150 myr in lak

    (myr is ringgit, lak is Lao kip - I had to get at least one currency Google doesn't have!)

    Next up on the to-do list (after fixing a spider bug that means it's not properly respecting /robots.txt so I can start crawling again) is those shipping rates and fixing an API for them. You can get shipping quotes from your search box by typing "<weight> to <destination>", so for sending half a kilo to thailand, you'd search:

    0.5kg to thailand
    - or -
    .5kg to th
    - or -
    500g to thailand

    It's a development version, so you'll probably see a hole or two in it, I'm just interested to see what webmasters think of the design (won't work on older browsers or without js - I'll do a simple version one day for phones), that left-list of other search engines (useful or not?) - I'd be very interested if it doesn't work at all with your browser - and just anything that crosses your mind.

    If any malaysianwebmasters can tell me how search in Chinese characters works (an even smaller set of pages), I'd be particularly interested - I haven't got a clue.
