I should have reread my post before sending. I didn't mean to say that
the archive search was broken. I was simply giving another option to
searching the archives. Since Google spiders many mail lists and web
documents then searching with Google will bring a wider base of
knowledge including the Cygwin FAQ and documentation pages. I simply
use Google for most all of my web searches because I can easily find
what I need with it.
