    Here's a really good way to search this or any site. Copy this code, make a bookmark, edit the bookmark and put this code in the URL. Then, in any site, click your bookmark. It will pop up a little search window, and you enter what you're looking for. Since this uses Google's search engine, it does a better job than the native search tools you find in most sites. And, you can do three letter searches (airport codes), or even two letter searches.

    Code:
    javascript:Qr=prompt('Search%20Site%20for','');if(Qr)location.href='http://www.google.com/search?&q=site:'+encodeURIComponent(window.location.hostname)+'+'+escape(Qr)

    I wonder if that code can be embedded in the menu bar of a site, so that it creates a handy site search tool... I'll have to play with that tomorrow.

    Pretty cool tip there, thanks Gargoyle.

    I'll add it to be considered in the suggestion master list.
