Damn! Thanks for letting me know. Apparently since I switched to the new
server, the outfit ( that was providing the search ability (my
old server license did not include the Microsoft Indexing engine) stopped
working... its not really a M$ failure, although, prior to realizing this I had
tried to set up the index / search engine on the new server (an NT 4 IIS 4
box) and it totally kicked my butt. The problem is that not all of the
content on the site is public. Even within one page, some sections may be
public and others private. This requires a very special system for
displaying and searching the site.

I'll keep working on it and try to figure out why the current search doesn't
work anymore and eventually get the Microsoft indexer around to my strange
ways. I'll comment out the search box until I have something working. Sorry.

Also, I have yet to get my little Linux box to correctly switch DNS to a
backup when it detects a server failure... So much to do, so little time (or
ability <GRIN>) to do it.

On the other hand, the
site has a new instruction set reference that is pretty cool and soon, I'll
have a code "colorizer" running that will link every instruction in a
program listing on the site to the reference page for that instruction. Neat
idea huh?
