Yes, working on the new "similar thread" HTML code this weekend I was reading a lot of posts from over 10 and even 15 years ago.

There has been such a wealth of posts here.

If everyone who we have helped along the way, and all those who participate now, posted a single link on their web site(s) and / or social media page(s), we would rank #1 in Google search results and our traffic would easily double over time.

That would be a great help, for sure!

Also, writing tutorials and posting code also helps a lot! Thanks for your recent posts! Great job!

bakunin has recently posted a nice one as well.

elvi - surfraw(1) search tools SYNOPSIS
surfraw elviname [options] search words ... sr elviname [options] search words ... sr elviname -help sr -elvi DESCRIPTION
This is the man page for the elvi, a set of search tools that form part of surfraw(1). Surfraw provides a fast unix command line interface to a variety of popular WWW search engines and other artifacts of power. It reclaims google, altavista, dejanews, freshmeat, research index, slashdot and many others from the false-prophet, pox-infested heathen lands of html-forms, placing these wonders where they belong, deep in unix heartland, as god loving extensions to the shell. To search using this elvis, do: sr elvisname [options] search terms. For example, to search google for information on Debian ports, using the "I'm feeling lucky" option: sr google -l debian ports To find out about options specific to this elvis, do: sr elvisname -local-help To find out about surfraw, see the man page for surfraw(1). To see the full list of elvi, do: sr -elvi Adding the elvi to your path If you are a regular user of surfraw, you will probably get sick of typing sr or surfraw each time. You can regain the old behaviour of running the elvi directly by adding the elvi directory (/usr/lib/surfraw) to your path, either manually or using surfraw-update-path(1). OPTIONS
Use sr elviname -local-help for elvi-specific options. The following options work with all elvi. -help Show summary of options (including elvi-specific options). -local-help Show elvi-specific options. -version Show version of program. -browser=EXECUTABLE Set browser (default: sensible-browser). -elvi Display a list of other Surfraw mechanisms for conquering evil. -escape-url-args=yes|no Apply url escaping to arguments (default: yes) -q|-quote Bracket arguments with " characters (default: no) Note that putting quotes round arguments works now, so you can do, for example: sr google foo "bar baz" bam and the quoting is passed on to the search engine EXAMPLES
$ sr ask why is jeeves gay? $ surfraw google -results=100 RMS, GNU, which is sinner, which is sin? $ sr austlii -method=phrase dog like $ /usr/lib/surfraw/rhyme -method=perfect Julian BUGS
Please report any bugs found (or any web sites in need of surfrawizing) either via the debian bug tracking system (http://bugs.debian.org/) or to the surfraw-devel list (surfraw-devel@lists.alioth.debian.org). SEE ALSO
