Main Question or Discussion Point

Anybody knows what kind of web searcher have Astro installed in his computer?. It's amazing to see how he show cents of links for everything people ask him. An example:

https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?p=706681#post706681

My Google is more modest.

Astro, I crown you as the SuperWebSearcherMan over the wide PF world. :!!) :biggrin:

The ceremony wil be in your home of San Diego, where you will make a great barbacue for us, and where I will be invited of course. :rolleyes:

Well, one of them is from a specific NASA site, one of them is from Wikipedia and one of them is a physics forum thread.

So, the searchers he used were... Wikipedia, physicsforums and he probably had the Nasa URL already, or maybe he googled it.

Seems pretty elementary to me...?

Official CSU website. 2nd and 3rd down when googling 'Internal Combustion Engine' (the topic).

http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&q=Internal+Combustion+Engine

Looks like he used google for that one.

Nah, I believe you. Astronuc is pretty impressive with his research. but really, you don't need any new-fangled toys to do it.

You know, I have to flatter him a bit in order to get invited to a barbecue in his home of SD when I arrive there. :biggrin: But please don't tell him I said that :rofl: .

hitssquad=SuperWebSearcherMan

Astro, I crown you as the SuperWebSearcherMan over the wide PF world.
:rofl: Thanks for the compliment.

Actually, I think hitssquad might be the superlative Webinfo finder. He manages to find a lot of useful information.

I do look at specific sites (e.g. hyperphysics, mathworld and scienceworld.wolfram.com, . . . ) and many are saved as favorites.

I do use google as smurf mentioned.

I also frequent the NASA sites - which unfortunately seem to change from year to year.

As for San Diego - its my second home. I actually live most of the time north of NY City - that is when I am not on the road.

Yes blah blah blah......

But what about the barbecue? I will arrive on 9th September. I think this thread deserves a meat barbecue for me :biggrin: .

We'll definitely do BBQ, but that depends when I am next in SD, which might not be until October. I'll let you know.
