Slide 21: 

Searching Tips If there isn't a specialized search engine, try Yahoo. Sometimes you'll find a matching subject category or two and that's all you'll need. If Yahoo doesn't turn up anything, try AltaVista, Google, Hotbot, Lycos, and perhaps other search engines for their results. Depending on how important the search is, you usually don't need to go below the first 20 entries on each. For efficiency, consider using a ferret that will use a number of search engines simultaneously for you.

Slide 22: 

Searching Tips

Slide 23: 

If you feel it's necessary, also search the Usenet newsgroups. As you continue to search, keep rethinking your search arguments. What new approaches could you use? What are some related subjects to search for that might lead you to the one you really want? Searching Tips At this point, if you haven't found what you need, consider using the subject directory approach to searching. Look at Yahoo or someone else's structured organization of subject categories and see if you can narrow down a category your term or phrase is likely to be in. If nothing else, this may give you ideas for new search phrases.

Slide 25:

Slide 27:

Slide 28:

Slide 29: 

Uses multiple spiders – up to 4 at a time! At peak performance the system could crawl over 100 pages per second generating around 600 kilobytes of data per second!

Slide 30: 

It is simply an online game using Google! The contestant types two words in Google and hopes to receive ONE result only. When this happens it is called a Pure Whack. The contestant can then submit it to where it will be posted. One such Pure Whack is the result of the search for “ambidextrous scallywags”!
