My biggest problem with search engines is that it is very difficult to
get them to give you only current information. I mean when I search
for a problem I am having with the latest version mythTV I do not want
any results from 2004. I know google has the filter by date feature
but at least for me it does not work. And then if I add the mythtv
version in my search I get no results.
