New Chiffboard Search

Post by MTGuru »

For those of you who find the built-in Chiffboard "search" function too limited and frustrating, the Moderators highly recommend that from now on you use the new Google Really Advanced Search instead.

http://www.google.com/js/reallyadvanced.html

In particular, the ability to search for

o rhyming slang
o subtext or innuendo
o embarrassing grammatical faux pas

should prove invaluable in ferreting out those hard-to-find posts.

And if all else fails, the new "Search by odor" capability should find exactly what you're looking for.

Enjoy!

does have an interesting feature set...
this exact word or phrase, whose sum of unicode code points is a mersenne prime:
I'm not sure if I would use some of them
Picture a bright blue ball just spinning, spinning free
It's dizzying, the possibilities. Ashes, Ashes all fall down.

Thank goodness, I've been having a heck of a
time finding that one empirically passive site
with a paisley background. I think it smelled
of elderberries.

The Pagan community wants to know if any search engines can search by aura. A vocal minority claims to be able to do this already, by personal concentration.

If a Pagan really needed to become aware of those posts, those posts would find the Pagan. Again, backward thinking on the innertubes.
