Cuil (pronounced Cool) recently launched and is the newest entry into Google’s list of competitors. I immediately checked it out and tried its technology. Before doing the search, the page shows that it has indexed more than a billion pages. Impressive, but I think Google also has the same, could be more or less but pretty sure a lot. Once the search results came out, I think that I like Google’s layout more, aside from the fact that people have gotten used to it, the results are presented in a better way than Cuil does. That is what made Google also stand out over Yahoo and Microsoft, not counting still how fast Google displays results and more so those that are relevant to the searched keyword that the user was searching for.

Having another competitor into the search engine wars is a welcome site to everybody. Google would always find ways to keep itself number 1. And competitors would find new stuffs to overtake them. At this time, Google owns a large share over search engine statistics and Cuil won’t overtake them, not this early and not this soon. Only time can tell … Who knows, the fact that Cuil is pioneered by some of Google’s main engineers can possibly jolt Google, but Google is still king at this time. I’ll wait and see how Cuil plans to overtake them over the next few years. What about you?

When using the Mutt email client in Unix systems, you may find this annoying message

/var/mail/[user] No such file or directory (errno = 2)

prompted whenever you open the application. It’s not something that’s messing your mail server or something. To disable this message, use the touch command.

touch /var/mail/[user]

I’ve scoured over the net on how to permanently remove the Exim4 Mail Server from the Ubuntu OS and came across with this one command that did it. The other options that include purge with it didn’t work. So I’m sticking with this one since it is what made it work and I was able to reinstall Exim4 again.

apt-get remove exim4 exim4-base exim4-config exim4-daemon-light

Then just install Exim4 again with this command.

apt-get install exim4

If you are using an account that doesn’t have root access, add the command sudo first.
