I agree 100%. Part of the erason I stopped actively developing public
searches for DQSD was that it was near impossible to get changes to the
site. I'm not a publicity hound, but I do like to have my efforts
published when I devote my time to something like this. The current site
is very "early 21st century", so is lacking a lot of features that
should be available on most current sites.
