Description

This article is from the Europe FAQ, by Yves Bellefeuille yan@storm.ca with help from Martin Rich M.G.Rich@city.ac.uk.

05 What is "Google"?

Google, http://groups.google.com/, lets you search almost all Usenet
posts since 1980. It can be an invaluable reference. Google is the
successor to a similar service called "Deja News", and later called
"Deja".

To search posts that have appeared in rec.travel.europe, choose
"Advanced Groups Search". Fill in one of the four options under "Find
message" and enter "rec.travel.europe" under "Newsgroup"; you can also
choose other options, such as "Message Dates", if you wish. Press
"Google Search" to complete your request.

To search all groups in the rec.travel.* hierarchy, enter "rec.travel.*"
as the Newsgroup. To search all groups with "europe" in their name
(including misc.transport.rail.europe, rec.arts.comics.european,
rec.sport.basketball.europe, and so on), enter "*europe*" as the
Newsgroup -- note the asterisks both before and after the word "europe".
