[ubuntu-uk] Google fu - like kung-fu, but with search :)

Bruno & Alan- 
Your Google-Fu is indeed mighty....  I've learned a lot today.
Here's something interesting i found using Bruno's search syntax : http://www.ubuntu.com/tour/en/
I had a click through there and there are still links to ubuntu one (both the music store and file store).

I created the following tampermonkey script to fix the ubuntu tour : 
// ==UserScript==// @match      http://www.ubuntu.com/tour/en/*// @require    http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1/jquery.min.js// @require    http://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/sugar/1.3/sugar.min.js// @name UbuntuOneRemove// ==/UserScript==   var runEverySecond = function(){  $('li.uone').remove();  $('li.uonemusic').remove();
}; $(document).ready(function() {    setInterval(runEverySecond,1000);});

might be able to do something more appropriate by modifying the tour to not include those icons, or hiding them on the event (when the Ubuntu logo disapears from the screen).

The syntax to ask Google to find pages that link to a particular place is link:<destination> and to find pages on a particular site is site:<site>. So I believe that to find all links to ubuntuone.com on ubuntu.com, you'd put this into Google:

link:ubuntuone.com site:ubuntu.com

I've pinged Iain this thread so he can find somewhere else for it and

get the post updated.

Some turn up with this. Probably easier for people who runs the

various domains to search for ubuntuone links though.
