Although I am very busy at the moment, I'll find some time in the next couple of
days to add a <META> tag in the body of Frank's page. Meta tags enable web
crawlers to find additional information in a HTML document such as author,
content, rating (of course Frank's will be rated adult-content...!) etc., and to
list that particular page in a search engine, such as Yahoo, Alta Vista etc.

It takes approximately a week for these web crawlers to "discover" your
"contribution" to the World Wide Mess...After that you can type any of the key
words which are inserted in that page's META tag (e.g. Frank and Ippolito, or
Frank's and Ippolito and portfolio - it is important to type the conjunction
"and" or the sign "+" between all major words if you want to discover ONLY what
you are looking for!) in one of the search engines and Frank's web page address
comes up listed first, then you get another billion or so of names relatively
close to Frank like "Frank Amarillo's Passionate Love Affairs", Frank Esposito's
Wonder World etc. etc. Attention! not all search engines are using web crawlers.


The following quote should be read only by people who can imitate Emil's heavy
East European accent (close enough to the East Indian one..)
