Day’s Verse:
Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness…”
And God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.

Genesis 1:26, 27

Once again I owe Ian a debt of gratitude. He has, from scratch, created a search feature that will search my blog archives. That’s the new Search box on the side there. It works well, but has some strange quirks you need to know about before you use it.

1. Single-word searches look for that exact word in each post. Results are ranked by number of occurances of that word in each post.

Example: to find results about my and Ian’s MQPs, you could enter the search term “MQP.”

2. For multiple-word searches, you need to include the plus sign between words. Then it will search for both words in the blog.

Example: if you wanted to know about my MQP in London, you could search “MQP + London.” You will get results that include both “MQP” and “London” at the top of the list.

3. For multiple-word searches where you want to find a specific phrase, just type that phrase.

Example: if you wanted to search for my baking escapades, you could enter “chocolate chip cookies.” The results would be ranked according to occurances of that phrase in each post.

4. For multiple word searches where you want to specifically exclude something, use the minus sign between words.

Example: if you wanted to read about cookies, but not chocolate chip cookies, you could enter “cookie – chocolate chip.” This would produce results with all occurances of the word “cookie” but not the phrase “chocolate chip.”

5. You can add or subtract all you want; do algebra! See what happens! And thank Ian if you use it much, because it was all his baby.

6. You can return to the front page, with all my most recent posts, by clicking on the big Semicircular Reasoning banner at the top of the page. Or you can click the back button on your browser.

  1. Algebra? Can I multiply? Does it respond correctly to parentheses? Can I exponentiate if one search term is exponentially more important than the other?
