Thanks for the reply.  :-)

Yes, I'm aware of Google's "site:" syntax, but it's not as useful as a 
good built-in search engine:

For example, I'm trying to figure out how to change the terminal server 
network address.  I've yet to construct a Google query that doesn't give 
me too many or too few hits: "terminal server" change address allintitle: "terminal server"

Also, I'd like to be able to sort the hits in reverse chronological 
order (perhaps there's a Google syntax for that?).

I guess I'm making a feature request...
