no worries, space...

we, your humble mods, take a dim view of forum spamming.

People are welcome here, including notorious spammers of other forums. They are not welcome to be disruptive, clutter topics with nonresponsive posts (except of course in the topics that are designated areas for nonresponsive posts, e.g. Spinnin'...), and bother folks. Spam here, and your account is toast.

ME, the old and cranky mod

How Long Before The Previous Poster Starts Spamming This Forum?

Oh no. Not you. I've seen your SPAM on the Zappa forum.

Custom search

Hi all,

I enjoyed 's tip on using quotes. As a librarian, I've learned a lot about searching Google. And one thing I've done is to construct a custom search engine (This Old Engine) for Grateful Dead topics. It's located at

http://arts.ucsc.edu/gdead/agdl/thisoldengine.html

Always happy to add new sites for the engine to peruse...

use dem quotes, yo

Google searching (does anyone Yahoo search anymore?!) for Grateful Dead displays the following: "about 6,180,000"

However, did you know that using quotes narrows down what you're really looking for?

Case in point -- about 1,550,000 for "grateful dead".

(Much easier to look through a million and a half web pages than 6 million, isn't it?!)

Anyway, I only bring this up 'cause some people don't actually know that if you type in Jerry Garcia you might get TONS of sites that have absolutely NOTHING to do with Captain Trips. But if you use quotes, my friends, you will magically be given better results!!

Have a Grateful Dead!

inkwell

thanks for the heads-up, iz!

There are also boatloads of interesting interviews in the inkwell archives, often book authors, including David Dodd (of Annotated Lyrics, Oxford Reader and more), Bruce Sterling, Richie Unterberger and more.
