Searching the gthomas archives with Google!
- Yahoo's so-called search feature is sometimes frustrating to use when trying
to track things down in the archives. I recently got a tip from someone on
another forum about using Google to search the archives. I've tried it and
it works GREAT. Here is the protocol:
Open Google's advanced page:
The first section of this page is shaded blue, and contains the following
with all of the words
with the exact phrase
with at least one of the words
without the words
You can add words to varying degrees of sophistication for your search.
This is the important bit!
Just below this blue shaded area there is another section, go to the fifth

selected. In the next text box (to the right of Only) place the domain you
want to search in, this case you want to search the gthomas archives so
place in this box the following:
I've found that this protocol can yield some VERY finely honed results. Feel
free to pass this on to others.
