pssst, check this out...
« on: November 24, 2010, 04:45:38 PM »

Some of you are prolly already making use of this, but I thought I'd share a little technique I've been enjoying lately: site specific google searching.

All you gotta do is type the search term(s) in the google search box followed by " site:" (omit the quotes) followed by the site of interest.

For example:  tangler site:ta0.com

which gives http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&source=hp&q=tangler+site%3Ata0.com&btnG=Google+Search&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&oq=&gs_rfai=

Good stuff for zeroing in on real specific topics/items of interest if/when a reqular search comes up short. 

Enjoy!

and for those that don't know, if you use the search on this forum, it will only search from the page you are on "down."  So if you want to search the whole forum, you must search from the "top," meaning the home page.

That's a good tip.  I've struggled with this on occasion.
