See the Source Code
As you may have noticed Search
Thingy uses Java Script ( not to be confused with Java - a
different language ) It does this to speed things up and
means that once you have loaded Search Thingy you can just leave
it in your browser without having to continuously reload it. It
uses asp ( Active Server Pages ) as well but that part of it is
invisible. If you are interested in Java Script take a look at the
source page ( by clicking View and then Source or Page Source
) Note that the reference to "Hide" refers to hiding the
script from browsers which cannot cope with Java Script not
hiding from people!

Make Search Thingy your Home Page
When you turn on your computer and load your browser it will open at a
particular page, known as the Home Page. If you wish, you can alter this
to a page of your choice. In Netscape you can click on Edit, then
Preferences then alter the Location box.
If you have Microsoft Internet Explorer as your browser you can just click this button
Bookmark/Add Search Thingy to Favorites
The simplest way to do this is just to
Press Ctrl-D ( ie Press the Ctrl
button and the D key at the same time ) This works
for both Netscape and Microsoft Internet Explorer but is
a little temperamental!
Alternatively, you can try clicking this button ...
Save Your "Tick" Settings as well ..
Suppose you like using
for searching. In the list of search
engines they are at positions
So, to ensure that they are already ticked when you arrive on
site save the site ( ie Bookmark in Netscape or
Favorites in Microsoft Internet Explorer ) as:
- Internet Explorer users can just click this button ...
( please remove "nospam." in the address!)
