Carl, all that info makes my head hurt—but what a great idea!

Wayne we know you like beans, we've heard the evidence. What say mutants, bean or no beans?
No beans, no, no, no. Touch of rice is nice. Same benefits.

The key word is easily.... hmmmm Carl, any ideas....
Oh gosh! That would be a lot of flipping back and forth to see what was said.

This would be unlike other search results available today because it would tie the words to the posts and some as-yet-to-be-defined interface would make it super easy to find discussions in the past. I have something similar in concept in an email program and can easily find a particular email among 100,000 of them, usually in seconds (of course, depending on the uniqueness of what's being searched).

What got me started on this was there is so much information buried in not only this thread, but many, and finding it takes just way too long. For example, I'd like to quickly find parks people have stayed at but using IRV2 search or Google search, it takes forever to go through those results and if it's not on the top of the results, you basically never find what you're looking for unless you're really persistent. For me, it has to be a better experience than what's available.

My other issue is how would I "share" what this is? Ideally, it'd be some web-based thing, but that requires hosting and security and all kinds of fun stuff, so it's been on the back burner for a while.
Carl, are you grepping again! (Not many will understand that)

==========================
Had the DirecTV traveler converted over to Dish today and will use the Wally receiver. All checked out and ready to go. Earlene is going to be happy she can have Food Network and HGTV. I might get some good dinners out of that.

Hey Wayne, does that DTV to Dish conversion work with the Winegard traveler (in motion) or just the HD unit?

I'm going to add an HD dish to my coach, I already have the traveler in motion unit. I hear DTV is doing away with SD TV soon. I'm also hearing Dish is a better deal. I will make the switch to Dish after contract runs out. But will my Winegard be useless, is my question.

What a nightmare, and hard to believe unless you went through it yourself. Thanks to all the powers that be for all the people, the machines, and the systems that made survival possible!

Love ya both!

I have my own system for dealing with emails. I read them and then delete them. EZZY PZZY,

Might I suggest something that might make the task a little easier. A series of books, each mutant can research their own post and write their own book.

The Book of Tim
Or
Mutants according to Tim
Or maybe
Mutants, the truth comes out!

I can't wate to read mine.
