Best way to search for previous posts? [+]
posted by fenriq to Etiquette/Policy at 8:12 AM (163 comments total)

I've been trying to hunt down an FPP that I'm sure has been posted before but the search engines are, shall we say, lacking in refinement.

I've tried tags, Google, Yahoo and every combination of words I could think of and haven't found the post yet.

Do folks have some tricks they can share?

what was the post about?

Asking on MetaTalk works pretty well if you describe what you're looking for.

It was about a backpack with a generator system built in, it would have been back in early September, I think.

But I crawled September and October and didn't find it. It is possible it hasn't been posted before (which would be fine as I'd like to post it) but I'd also like to cut down on the incidence of my double posting (I live to try and ease your workload, Matt!).
posted by fenriq at 8:23 AM on December 8, 2005


there's nothing similar in searches for "backpack" or "generator" in the old bruteforce search. Are you talking a solar powered backpack or one with a crank?
posted by mathowie (staff) at 8:50 AM on December 8, 2005


I ended up posting it as I'm heading out the door right now. Check it out. It's a very cool concept, no solar, no crank, just walking.
posted by fenriq at 8:58 AM on December 8, 2005


Sometimes hard to find what you're looking for because the search indexes everything - post and comments. If there was any way to limit searches to just posts it might be easier. Yesterday I did a search on AskMe for "ipod headphones" and got everything except the item I wanted - which was posted Dec. 6. Thanks, Yahoo!
posted by caution live frogs at 9:45 AM on December 8, 2005


A "just FPP" search would be really useful for instances like this. Or a dedicated tag search (I know, its super simple to go to tags and enter whatever tag you want straight into the URL).

But I know this is a major, major pony and I also know that Matt's well aware of its need and utility.
posted by fenriq at 10:44 AM on December 8, 2005


The archive pages show only posts, not comments, so that can be used along with a site search in Google, since that also allows searches within subdirectories along with full domains. Example. Use www.metafilter.com/archived.mefi as the site name. Or substitute "metatalk" or "ask" for "www" as appropriate. (Projects does not yet have monthyl archives.)

Not perfect, since it won't show you multiple posts within a month matching your terms until you actually click through and search within each archived page for your term (or use the Google cached version and look for the highlighted terms), but better than nothing.
posted by DevilsAdvocate at 11:03 AM on December 8, 2005


Yeah, fenriq, I thought I saw a post on this a while ago, and when I saw your post, I did a search as well. Couldn't find it. Turns out I read it on somebody else's blog, back in September.

"Hello," said Rogers' quiet voice. "Well, what do you want?"

No sooner had the barbaric front ranks beheld the languid, slightly annoyed junior than the fury of battle vanished like a flurry of wind across the water. From behind the more concealed began to murmur:

"Oh, beans!"

"A lemon!"

"Rubber!"

"Sold!"

"Well, what is it?" said Rogers sharply, sending a terrific frown at the sheepish leaders.

At this curt reminder there was a shifting movement in the rear, which rapidly communicated itself to the stammering, apologetic front ranks; the door was closed in ludicrous haste, and down the stairs resounded the stampede of the baffled host.

"My, they are a fierce lot, these man-eating sophomores, aren't they?" said Rogers, giving way to his laughter.

Are these two posters among the thousands of relatively literate citizens who were immediately (though not irredeemably) confused upon the assignation of both of these authors in high school, leading to the brief belief that The Jungle and Arrowsmith were written by the same person?

You noticed my 98 "neighbors", including Mathowie? You really did read to the end.
Now that it is too late, I want my red page back. Surely some clever person will find a way.

Hey funnybunnies, keep yer recursively distributed Escherian metametafeuds off of our precious pristine longboat, alright?

Consider yourselves heartily welcomed to my enemy list. ;)

You ain't so tough! I'll be better in the future, I swear.

Feuds may be foldd neatly and kept below decks. Enemies may be folded neatly and kept in the brig. Please refer to the manual "Bluejackets Guide" for further solutions to every day problems.

Refer to Google for a salute to M.Braille.

I know I said I'd be better, but...I came here first to show my love for IIHAA, and I'll do it again now, as a longboat denizen, and wherever else it's necessary, I salute you.

To be fair, Anus, the only person conflating you two is a self-proclaimed wino.

Ahh... now I get it - he just quit smoking. Poor sod.

Nice Donkey, perhaps some careful grazing would benefit the upholstery.

Somebody please remind me of this when best of 2006 discussions come around.
posted by If I Had An Anus at 12:55 PM on January 6, 2006


I'm reminding myself by putting it on my user page. It's mostly so that I don't forget that part of html, which I don't really know except for the basics.
posted by OmieWise at 12:59 PM on January 6, 2006


Ooh, Donkey, ooh!

*giggles, fends off the friendly beast*

















For some reason, girls always ask me whether I pluck my eyebrows. No, thank you, they've always been neat like this. By themselves. Thank FSM I didn't inherit the Great British Unibrow Gene (aka the Bert Gene).




















Now where's raedyn.

raedyn has been missing for much too long. What shall we do? email the RCMP?
posted by Cranberry at 10:55 PM on January 6, 2006


Ah, for a moment I thought you meant these guys (NSFW) instead of these.
Pesky acronyms.

Anyway, they have email now?

On the internet, no one knows you are a horse.
posted by Cranberry at 7:49 PM on January 7, 2006


They don't know you're a horse, but they know about your longboat. Ack!
