If you read a lot of books, it's always nice to know if there are others books that you may like based on a list of books you like. Well Unsuggester is kinda like that, but then the other way around. You type in a title of a book you like, and the site displays you a list of books you will probably not like. It is not very useful, but who knows maybe you'll find a nice book even though the system says you will probably not like it.
Now i don't know how many readers work with websites, but maybe some of you can use this link. It's an article on how to speed up sites using .htaccess file. It is quite a read but it looks promising, and the comment discussion there can also prove to be quite useful.
Update: Unsuggester is still available on the Internet. You are probably wondering how the tool comes up with the books that you may not look. It does so by analyzing book collections of all of its users, to come up with a list of books that are least likely to share a library with the book you have entered.
The approach taken is interesting, but the sheer lack of another book in a library does not really mean that you won't like it as tastes differ. It probably works best for very popular books, and not at all when it comes to lesser popular books.
As far as the htaccess link goes, the site in question seems to have edited the contents. It is now offering lots of information about htaccess in general, including a large code snippets listing. A quick glance at the contents did not reveal the "speed up" tip, but it is probably still there somewhere.
