Yubnub Hubba Hubba


Here are a few more shiny stones I’ve found in my voyage to the center of the spam-infested depths of Yubnub.

Remember, to get the benefit of these commands, visit Yubnub and type the example text or something like it. For example, typing ma sarek will get you a page of info on Spock’s dad from the Star Trek Memory Alpha wiki. Equal time for The Other Fandom: typing wook ewok in the Yubnub search box will find too much information about Ewoks in the Wookieepedia.

  • bi: Comprehensive ISBN book lookup. Example: bi 978-1-4493-1494-1
  • jbo: Lojban Lookup. Lojban is a constructed language and so like Esperanto, only more obscure. Example: jbo gerku
  • ma: Memory Alpha Star Trek fan wiki. Example: ma sarek
  • math: Wolfram Mathworld math encyclopedia. Example: mathworld tesseract
  • safari: O’Reilly Safari Online. Example: safari hale-evans (Hey! Both my books are in there!)
  • tro: TV Tropes, endless fun – by which I mean you may not find your way out. Example: tro mad scientist
  • url: Display a Yubnub command URL for reuse. Example: url tro mad scientist
  • wc: Wikimedia Commons, the database of free images and other free media associated with Wikipedia. Example: wc robot
  • wook: Wookieepedia Star Wars fan wiki. Example: wook ewok
