Four-hour timesaver

HANDELAAR -- While John Handelaar tirelessly tweaked the CSS layout behind his search-engine-friendly, 25000-legacy-articles gallery, he hit upon a finding that stemmed from four hours of tedious web coding. Web developers would do well to benefit from his discovery. He wanted to avoid using tables for the usual reasons.

BLINKX -- This little search utility quickly downloads, installs, and watches. Although its results lack the authority of a more comprehensive Google search, its results provide more reach than Google because you can see local documents, weblogs and content not normally among the top 20 results in a Google search. When you visit a page related to a news item or a web reference, a small icon in the upper right hand corner of your screen glows red or blue respectively. But I did not get the same effective response from the local (hard drive) search icon since I store most of my stash on removeable media.
