    google is still your friend..and there seems to be no end to the
    universe of documentation available...just sharpen your google-fu..

    for example you can use a site specifier in your search strings, like:

    sitepensuse.org [search string]

    returns hits from anywhere in openSUSE-land, while this

    site:forum.opensuse.org [search string]

    returns only from these fora, and this

    site:en.forum.opensuse.org [search string]

    only from the openSUSE wiki, and this

    sitepensuse-community.org [search string]

    from the openSUSE Community site (have you discovered that yet?)

    and, don't overlook the corporation digs at

    site:novell.com [SUSE search string]

    see, for example

    http://www.google.com/search?q=site%...+documentation

    finally, if i've not mentioned it to you before:

    Thanks for reminding this searchmaster Palladium :-)
    Practicing my "Google Fu" i must,
    Google manual reading is wise suggestion
    May the search force be with you

    on Google
    Google is not the only "average" searchengine in this Google-verse ;-)
    I often use META search engines (higherlevel_searchengines that question other (lowerlevel)searchengines like e.g. Google, MSN, Bing, Yahoo).


    This way i brooaaddeen my search results. Google may be the biggest and most dominating search engine, but there were other and older searchengine on the block, long before Google appear at the search-engine horizon.

    on search engines in general
    It also helps to be aware how the backends of the "major (lowlevel) searchengines are interconnected.


    This helps you to evaluate the search result, returned by one (lowlevel) search engine vrs result for another (lowlevel) search engine.
    This is the reason why i use (higher level) metasearch engines to first search in the w-i-d-t-h and later a lowlevel searchenige to search in the depth of information.


    Your young search apprentice,
    Ronald

    That certainly shines a different searchlight on this topic palladium :-)
    How about a computer-mindwave-reading device for backup in the dark ages?

    Thank for the other search engines! (Some of them i'd never heard of). This sure widens my search horizon again.

    regards, Ronald
