Code Search

Google has recently unveiled their code search feature, which lets you search the internet for open source code. I already have more respect for it than for its competitors. When I search “brian tarricone” in Krugle or Koders, I just get mention of my name in a file of Gaim’s source, from a (small) patch I submitted to fix a plugin. When I try Codease, I just get a 502 Proxy Error. Great service, guys.

However, with Google’s code search, I see my name in a bunch of Xfce- and Xfmedia-related files. Rock on. “Results 1 - 10 of about 12,800,” it says. Awesome.
