I like programming in Perl and C. I know Java and PHP too (I'm a MediaWiki developer), but I can't really say I like them. I keep meaning to learn Python some day, but never seem to get around to it.

I'm working on a Ph.D. in biomathematics. I also like programming puzzles and cryptography.

Please consider any (original) code I post to Stack Overflow (and other Stack Exchange sites) to be released under CC-Zero unless stated otherwise. You may do whatever you want with it and don't have to credit me in any way, although of course that would be nice.

comment Why does BingBot add “ForceRecrawl: 0” to URLs when crawling my sites?
Hmm, when I click on your bingbot.htm link, it takes me to onlinehelp.microsoft.com/en-us/bing/hh204496.aspx, not to mail.live.com. Curious.

Actually, it looks like Matt Cutts has already answered this pretty definitively.

To be honest, I have no idea. I guess you could try it and see what happens. It's not really what the 410 response code was meant for, though, so different crawlers might react to it is different ways.

I have no actual inside information to confirm this hunch, but, given that Google seems to be treating rel=canonical as more or less equivalent to a 301 redirect, I'd be pretty surprised if one of them caused any more or any less PageRank loss than the other.

Just FYI, 301 is the code for a permanent redirect. 302 is temporary.

comment Does anyone know where I can register a website with a .cat TLD?
@Peter: For English-speakers, a link to the English version of the FAQ might be more useful. :-)

You don't need to translate it, there's an English version of the page too.
