    digging the net

    how do u search the internet?

    of course you will all say, search engines

    but if really wanna search, would i depend on a commercial service to find the results
    what about sites that are not registred to search engines ? what about hiding stuff from search engines ?

    how do you search.

    my methodes so far:
    search engines
    reading and following links
    making logical connections, and browsing
    from friends or ppl specially on my msn or in forums and mailing lists

    Start by searching 'google' on the AO website. That might help.

    Every hacking net session (usually morning for about an hour or two before work) is when i extensivly use searches.

    Google, obviously, wouldnt mind a counter to see how many times i have
    GDS (Google Desktop Search), for searchin older previously visited webpage
    View New Posts, this is GOD. Means i can reliably check for posts im interested in, 0days, etc etc

    OK then, thats all i can remember atm

    but my point is, the nets a big place, and not one method will ever become more powerful than the other, every aspect has its pro's and con's...

    Lightbulb search methodology

    Depends what I'm looking for, but my usual searches go through these mediums.

    Google Search
    Gnutella (Limewire client)
    AO Forum Search

    If I don't find what I need from those I search some other forums and sites, but rarely do I not find something after searching all of these (usually takes 1 or 2 at the most).
