Doomsearch

Fraggle's idgames archive search engine is now accessible through a much more meaningful url, www.DoomSearch.com. To celebrate this new name, the site has been redesigned. Noticeable additions are a logo and an about page.

I agree, it would be nice to see that info instead of having to hover your mouse and look in your statusbar.

Excellent little utility.

Would be sweet if it could be expanded to allow searching within text files (i.e., search of all wads by an author). But that may be asking too much.

Yes, that can't be done from the index files provides by the archive. But a google search is almost as good; search for '"Kurt Kesler" inurl:idgames site:gamers.org' for example. It's not 100% I expect but it gets fair results.

fraggle/Julian could provide a form that builds that google query though.

Its something I'm planning, but it will probably be fairly complicated..
