Google suggest like dictionary created

I created a Google Suggest like dictionary on 24th december and posted about it on Joel on Software’s website. The response was amazing. There is a “how does it work?” section with all the source code so you could roll out your own versions.

today i got upwards of 5000 hits, but the dictionary registers a hit for every letter typed so it is not an accurate representation :-)

The fun part is the dictionary is based on the freely available websters 1913 dictionary, So try to type for words like, “computer”, “rocket”, “technology” , it is pretty funny. The next part of this project is to implement a custom webserver with an in-memory index and include all the other freely available dictionaries on the internet (like FOLDOC). Post your comments and suggest changes.
