Dude, did you just find out that search engines exist? There are links
pages that have the majority of all the available swimming sites on the
web also.I.E: http://hcs.harvard.edu/~swim/links. Knock yourself out.

   from the mind-stems of babes comes the above...

   people who continually ask for subjects listed by me
   are now easily found in one source-pit...

   yes, your suggestion above is great...but how many people who
   want this kind of info are stuck with what they see in that one
   www site....

   did you check out any ones I found: such as professional coaches

   all over the world.  

   get a hold of something fast and try to see the light....it will
   shine on you...if you let it.

   the having 100K of hits for one word via altavista is more "WOWS"
    value than your piddling singular offering....

    again, some people like to see how easy it is to get info and
    are looking for the path to that "ah hah"...

    I found it and share it...is not that what the net is about?

    hell, some people think i'm off base continually proposing that
    people learn how to float...really learn.  Beats me why?

     ps: try altavista and type in:  NCAA swimmers   or NCAA records
         or NCAA schools    simple and easy and what numbers of key
         finds to read...

     I try to make things simpler to do: altavista.com does that.
     It simplifies and codefies and helps identify that which flies

     what high school u attend?

And having to sort through the 85k of which is not really related to the
subject is a real pain in the *ss. I'll take Yahoo, which sorts things a
little bit better, thank you.

I actually maintain the Harvard Swim Links index listed above, and what we
try to offer over any of the search engines is a much higher signal/noise
ratio.  When you get 100,000 links back from an AltaVista search, you
usually end up with piles of duplicates.  I.e., search for "Harvard
Swimming" you get about 400,000 links back.  There's only *one* place you
really need to go for Harvard Swimming information.

      your idea makes sense to those who Know ....

      what i was addressing my postings to are those who
      come to the group not aware of what exists for them
      in the way of the many search engines available.

      being able to simplify those who are new or don't know much
      about search engines gives them a way to come to a engine
      that requires no notes to take down about your site address
      or remembering what to do when they cannot get it right.

      the search engines offer people ease of "get there now"

      so when I found Yahoo and then in yahoo when you search you
      get other engines to try.  There are about fif*** listed by
      yahoo....altavista came across as the most voluminous and
      rather awesome how they pack it there for people to read.

      http://SportToday.org/  is one answer.

      IT gives people a singular site to go to and enjoy the pleasure
      of what they find and based on the swimming topics I found plenty
      info about swimming, I just listed it for all to use.....

      Conclusion: people who want to search: go to http://SportToday.org/
      type in what you want to search for: say it's swimmers ear.

      You will also see that yahoo has a list of other search engines
       that you can go to, one of them is altavista.com.   Choose which
       one you like and feel gets you want you want.  Make it work for
       you.  

      Then do this: in Yahoo.com enter in the search line:

                   search engines

      There are about four groups of files which will tell you what a
       search engine is and how it works and then lists many many
       other search engines based on what you are looking for.

      Over 40 search engines listed on one thread alone.

      Print these out and file it in a binder and use it as a referent
      point when you need to search....

      I did not know there were that many search engines until I went
      into Yahoo further and printed out those results of all the
      other engines.....

      this is a learning forum: so the one search engine I listed was
      for ease of access by people who just want the facts the fastest.

      if you look at this as a learning experience, then you will not
       take umbrage against those who would "suggest" a site you find
       redundant.  

     Now people can make up their own minds....they have more facts.

      Remember: people are always coming on to the group and not
       scrolling through the answers prior to their coming on line.
       they want their answer answered.  Most of the times it has
       been, but different servers only hold info for so long.
