|Those of us who use Lexis/Nexis (the world's most comprehensive indexed collection of major global newspapers, academic/law journals, and other such) know how hideously expensive digital archives of copyrighted material can be. Search engine Northern Light not only provides access (for a small fee) to articles in pay-subscription periodicals related to your search query, it also organizes hits by topic-driven folders.|

|When they talk about a family feud, it's not a game show. However, things have cooled off some between the Hatfields and
the McCoys. The upcoming reunion includes a Hatfields vs. McCoys Softball game and other feud-related entertainment. To quote the McCoys' web site, "The 'L'il Feuder' Village will be a special area for kids that will feature events and games."|

|If you're like most Macintosh users, you've been screaming since Apple started shoving a completely shameful new interface paradigm down users' throats with the release of Quicktime 4 and Sherlock II. If you're one of those disgruntled fans, check out Raul's Sherlock II WinFix, which gives Sherlock II the Macintosh look and feel for which you bought the darn box. As to Quicktime 4, the only hope is to switch back to the Quicktime 3 MoviePlayer application, which is compatible with Quicktime 4 unless you consider dorky metallic sidebars to be a "feature".|

|Searching for music is not limited to finding MIDI or audio files tagged with the text of interest. Searching by example, aka "More Like This," is potentially
a far more intuitive mechanism for retrieving content but is especially challenging in the audio domain.
However, until MPEG has completed their specification MPEG-7 in 2001 July there will
not be a standard mechanism for creating searchable multimedia files.
Muscle Fish LLC is the 1992 offspring of four West Coast academics
who chose to patent
their sound classification scheme in 1997. The most technically interesting feature is a statistical distance metric computed on fairly
well understood audio features used for speech recognition and synthesis.
Along similar lines, Carnegie Mellon student Doug Beeferman developed a musical search algorithm that can index and retrieve find musically similar
files encoded in MIDI on the web with QPD -- Query by Pitch Dynamics (detail).

|Although intended to provide washing instructions without language, Laundry Care Symbols
are cryptic at best. While there, learn how to remove stains
from your clothes. Not suprisingly, the 4-H Club of the U.S.A. has published a large
number of searchable articles on basic social functioning, not the least of which
are the 4-H Clothing Project Reference Manual,
the laundry troubleshooting guide, a more comprehensive
stain removal guide,
how to look tall and slender in
your newly cared-for apparel, fiber facts covering
the gamut of yarns, and how to judge clothing fit and finish.

|Canadian doctors seem to be in a bit of a bind. In a desperate effort
to find a practitioner to emulate they have turned their stethoscopes upon
Hibbert and Nick Riviera from the

|Sometimes when I'm depressed, I casually watch metaspy to see what the unwashed masses are up to.
Some prophetic soul had searched for "Robotech".
At first click to The Robotech Page, I thought it was just another
weenie site filled with useless fan fiction and other such drivel, only dedicated
to the bastardized american animated series that I was most fond of in my youth.
I clicked here, I knew divine intervention had brought me to this
page. All of the Robotech episodes, Macross, Southern Cross,
Next Generation, and even the strangley begotten Sentinels series are
available online in realvideo. Thanks be to Zor!|
