Yes, here's how to search the TOG mailing lists with Google: Just put in:
site:lists.tog.ie inurl:/pipermail/tog/ WHATYOUWANTTOSEARCHFORHERE
e.g. to search for "open social", then do a google search for
site:lists.tog.ie inurl:/pipermail/tog/ open social
Google do "Google magic" and know when things happen, so you can even do
a date range search (options in the left hand side)
I wonder is there a way to make an easy text box with that on our website.
