    Custom Mac Forums Google Search Engine
    Hi guys. Not sure if this is the best place for this but anyway, it can be moved if needed.
    As I get a little peeved by people not using our (very good) search engine, I thought I'd create a custom Google search engine for us to use, and link to.
    It's a very simple thing really, but if you use it you will only get answers that are specifically linked to this website, and no other.
    I hope some of you find it useful. I tested it out and it's very quick.

    Cheers, Kev.

    (hopefully this will get a sticky!)

    ooh, that's slick Kev.

    Works a whale of a lot better than the search here. I might actually be able to find something now.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    Nice find. Unfortunately, the hard part is convincing people to use the search first - if they won't use the built in one, it's going to be hard to get them to use this one (however better it is).

    Agreed, but it's quicker if you need to find you're own older posts. I typed fsck kevriano and it instantly came up with all threads I had posted about the subject.

    Hopefully some of us will use it.
