    I had a thought. Since it's usually easier for a 'paid' member of ReefCentral to perform a search (I don't think they are stopped by the 'low resources' page), how feasable is it for a bunch of us to chip in and buy a membership there (20 bucks a year I think) and we call all use that to do searches when needed.

    I'm thinking just use an account name such as 'ChattReefer' or something?

    What does everyone else think?

    Don't know how high tech they are at RC...

    But some places track IP address and logins and in the scenario that multiple IPs for the same login are logged in at once they can ban the account or probably more likely just kick everyone out then have log in etc....

    But could be worth a try.

    The geek in me is showing, you can do a domain specific search with google that will do the exact function that reef centrals own search does...

    From google...

    You can use Google to search only within one specific website by entering the search terms you're looking for, followed by the word "site" and a colon followed by the domain name.

    For example, here's how you'd find information on "coraline algea" on reefcentral:

    Example Google Search: coraline aglea site:www.reefcentral.com

    :Cheers:
