Searching the forum


Madscientist,

Is there any way that the forum search engine could be upgraded to include Boolean searches? I'm finding it incredibly cumbersome to search the cache of knowledge contained here.

The search engine for this board is lousy and unlikely to be improved. Fortunately, all but Whimsy is indexed by google.

So go to google and type in

your query terms site:sciencemadness.org

It is possible to incorporate the google search into individual sites:

http://www.google.com/searchcode.html

That way you can stick to google search bar into the search page to search sciencemadness.org.
