I heard from a friend of mine that the general public only see's about 10% of the internet. He siad there are literally millions of sites not even registered with any search engine and that the sub-internet is really where all the action is.

I was told you have to get special searching programs that seek out these sites. Anyone know of any programs out there that allow a person to do this?

Well I guess that was just a stupid question to ask..LOL

Memo to self:

Never ask stupid questions again and just stick to cut and pasting.

that is what you would usually hear of when you hear internet in a gov't job. not like a webpage, but an area that is a bit harder to ge to, where you have to search the wastes of the net itself. think of it this way. the internet is nothing more than a subuniverse inside the human reality. the galakies and nebulae and stuff are the webpages found by search engines, and mainstream stuff. ats is merely a planet in this extensive system. the rest of this universe can be compared to our own universe's dark matter. most of it is mystery and unacknowledged. those who wish to find it have a hard time doing so. the internet is a near endless pit of information. it all however, revolves around the center of that universe. and there you find your answer. you cannot merely link to these sites. you must become skilled in the art of hacking and find them yourself.

I wonder how many variations of .com there are. For example, .net, .org, etc... Does anyone know all of the different variations?

We only see about 10% of the internet, that's interesting. Now I'm curious what else is out there. Why would you need a program to access the rest?

not access, to find

if you know where to look you dont need the program

Never Sleeps asked a good question!!
I have a web site that is seen (as far as i know) only by freinds and close family. It is not registered with any search engines, and i have not been able to locate it on any type of search that i've tried.
Maybe someone could find it if they knew a little about me or the web-site, but they would have to do some serious detective work.
If there is a program or a way of searching for sites like mine i would also like to know. Could make surfing the net very interesting!!
