The Personal Website of Ronald Huereca

A Strange Recommendation

For some reason, I couldn’t stop laughing out loud after searching the Fry’s Electronics website for their hard drive selection.

Hard or Drive?

Writer and software engineer Ronald Huereca has been a developer at notable agencies like iThemes and 10up. His varied background has him working with WordPress since 2006, eventually creating his own plugin which, of course, lead to more. He spends quite a bit of his time volunteering with the WordPress project as a core and polyglot contributor. With all of his passions, writing has been the way Ronald expresses himself best. He has written both technical books as well as fiction. Some of his works include Project Mayhem, Mindefusement, and WordPress and Ajax. “You can only delay the inevitable” is his favorite quote. Ronald enjoys reading Stephen King and John Grisham. When he’s not writing, Ronald dreams of building websites filled with cats yawning, disclaimers his strong opinions, sings karaoke, and advocates for empathy surrounding mental health.

  1. No way….just tried it; think you’re hallucinating or something cuz it worked just fine for me. hmmmmmmm….what would Freud say? 😉

  2. Type in a string that returns nothing and your get a request to trim down your search. The search engine doen’t use any intellegence to tailor the response. It can’t – to do so would mean the search engine would need to apply some syntax rules like to not suggest hard or drive in place of hard drive.

    All sites that incorporate a basic search engine suffer from the same flaw.

  3. It works fine with me. I tried two keywords “hard Drive” and harddrive” and it gaves me good search results. Well i guess search engine play with you. Or maybe search engine lost his mind temporarily. hahaha.
