Any chance of getting a search engine for this page?greenspun.com : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread
It would be nice!

Compared to rec.photo, this is a very convenient site for exchanging information, very well done. It's easy to start or post threads, to review them to look at the most recent posts, etc.
Probably in part because of this, there's a wealth of knowledge and information useful to L.F. photographers that can be found on this site. Being able to have some search capability would be really great.
And I would add, please don't ever purge older posts. I find it very useful to muse over the history categories, looking for some bit of information that I recall or need to verify.

A search engine would help greatly. As it is now you may find info on cameras under cameras, beginners questions, miscellaneous, or some other threads. On lenses there are headings for classic lenses and modern lenses. How do you kn

Agreed, some of the most thoughtful, sharing, detailed contributions of any Internet forum. THANKS

I've had success using the Find and Find Again commands in Netscape. I think Internet Explorer has similar commands. The key is to open a link that has multiple threads, such as the categories found after the recent messages, or try http://www.greenspun.com/bboard/main-frame.tcl?topic= Large%20format%20photography (all the messages, recent and past!). It's not a search engine, but it works in the interim.

I use the edit find feature too, but alot of threads get filed in strange places. A search engine makes it easier by listing the threads in order by the number of occurences the search words are found. Just like in Photo.net.
