Thanks Randy, I use google's advanced search all the time!
The trouble with limiting to freebsd.org is that it's a bigger search space than just this list's archive. I've been reading the freebsd handbook for quite some time, and have learned a lot there. But I've got a few dots left that need connecting that I think you all will be able to set me straight on very quickly. So, I'm off to start another thread on what I really came here for... (but making the archive search work would be great still!) e. On 3/10/07, Randy Pratt <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote:

Other operators can be used for google also: http://www.google.com/intl/en/help/operators.html HTH some, Randy --
