Omgili: New Search Engine for Web Discussion Forums
September 25, 2006 10:59 AM   Subscribe

Web discussion forums have some fantastic content. There is an excellent rank-ordered, categorized index of many of them, but the attempts to create a search engine for these forums, akin to that which already exists for the newsgroups, have generally failed. Let's wish Omgili some luck then. Maybe even do so in their forum.

Bwahaha. Head-fi, land of "double blind free" audiophile lunacy.

I used to think it was pretty cool too.

A much-belated answer to my AskMe question of a year ago. Very cool. Thanks!

Wow the "rank-ordered, categorized index" index link has one of the most annoying advertisement's I've ever seen. It loads on the bottom of the page, so you can't see it, and produces this obnoxious buzzing noise. I thought that my sound card had a short or something.

The Something Awful Forums are so content rich, you almost don't need the internet at large when you have a membership. I shit thee not.

That was true before they took all the porn and MP3 downloads away.

So I hear.

Uh... that's exactly what Omgili, my main link, is supposed to be trying to be!
