Out of the Blue

As you know if you've been following the saga of our search engine here, my recent announcement that it was back and better than ever after some downtime for reprogramming turned out to be premature, as it became apparent that a certain lack of precision had been introduced to the process. I now have a patch for that previous announcement (or perhaps this is a point release) that a little more coding has indeed resulted in a better-than-ever search engine, as the search results page now offers a drop-down menu that allows you to further modify your search with an "exact phrase (sort by date only)" option that provides all the functionality of our previous search engine, including searches for specific URLs, while not sacrificing the nice new sorted by relevance output, which can be helpful in searches for more general phrases. Huzzah and kudos to furn for his good work, and we hope you find the reworked search helpful.

Link of the Day: Matt's Star Wars Personality Test. I wanted to be Han (I'm guessing lots want the same), but ended up Lando(?!). Thanks Antony.
Story of the Day: His death a fantasy, says game player. The recent tragedies brought out the best in some, and the worst in others. Thanks Toronto Skunk.
Bonus Story: Photos Of Car Thief Found On Film In Car. If he were dead, he'd be a Darwin Award candidate. Thanks Steve Tamayo.
FBI PR of the Day: Warning of Possible Future Terrorist Attacks. Thanks Chris Johnson.
