    here's a suggestion to a "better" sitewide search engine.

    go into Google and on the search window type in "site:eek:ilburners.net" followed with the item you are trying to find.

    such as " site:eek:ilburners.net dually adaptors "

    if you still are having problems find stuff here with Google........your search-fu need recalibration......it's not the search engine for once. :D

    consider it a gentle re-hash for those who didn't see it the first time around. :D

    I have not tried that yet but it looks like it works well. Thanks

    To search the site without having to go back to google, click "ADVANCED SEARCH" (at the bottom right of every pages blue header)
    Under "search in" or "search type" select "ALL TYPES"
    Under "search for" across from "keyword(s)" select "SEARCH TITLE ONLY"
    Then save these as your search setting preference at the bottom left of "additional options" and searching becomes fast and effective without needing to leave the site;Sweet
