Hello, good evening! I had a very good and productive morning, afternoon and evening and a great Saturday as a whole working really hard with our engineers to make the final adjustments a new and really improved search service, powered by Google Inc., which is Loronix Community Search. I will tell you how it works.
LORONIX COMMUNITY SEARCH
Instead of search Google or search only Loronix using the old fashioned way, Loronix Community Search provides a customized search within all websites listed on our sidebar link section, now organized by categories, as follows:
Discographies: including friends who serve discography information of Brazilian music.
Musicians Websites: a list of musicians websites tuned with our community, such as Jovino Santos Neto, Ed Motta, Joe Carter (my master), Ricardo Sa Reston, Paulo Bitencourt and the tribute sites of Maria Lucia Godoy and Heitor Villa-Lobos. If you are a musician, feel free to send me an e-mail to engage this section.
zecalouro’s picks!: this section explains by itself, featuring websites of Loronix great friends, some of them not associated with Brazilian music, but really worth to visit.
Aggregators: the great friends who keep listings and directories of music websites, we have here Totally Fuzzy and Mammoth MP3 Blog List, the most complete music blog directory at the blogsphere.
Music Blogs: Loronix counterparts, websites that serves out of print music, Brazilian or not, but always with quality standards. You should keep an eye on them.
Great! Let’s see Loronix Community Search in action. It is very easy; all you need to do is type a search term in the search box bellow and wait for the results. Loronix Community Search will return your search results taking in consideration only the websites included on our 5 categories, such like the picture bellow, when the search expression “Jobim” was used.
Here is the great trick; it is possible to narrow results using the links with our category names on top of the search results. If you search Jobim and click on Discographies, the result set will retrieve only occurrences within the websites listed at Discographies category.
Now a real example, if you look for an album that is not available at Loronix, you can use Loronix Community Search and then narrow your results using the Music Blogs category to search all the other blogs with a single click.
I hope Loronix Community Search be comes a very useful tool to our community.
Before you leave, I just want to say we stated using this afternoon an automated translation service powered by Google, which is the best translation solution available to our needs. Now we can translate Loronix from English to other nine languages, they are: Portuguese, German, Chinese, Italian, Russian, Japanese, Spanish, French and Korean. Just reach the side bar to find a set of flags to choose your desired language.
I think I spoke a lot tonight. Thanks once again for your time and continuous support to Loronix.
