Find the forum post you're looking for with TWING
« on: March 17, 2008, 09:02:16 AM »
Twing might help you find the information you are seeking when you recall it was posted in a forum, but you can't recall much else.

Quote
Twing is a new search engine that indexes almost 5,000 online forums, on subjects ranging from the very general (arts and entertainment) to the extremely specific (Scottish Snooker). On top of its search features, it also has a 1990's-Yahoo!-style directory organized by topic, and a collection of trends and toplists called the Community Buzz Directory...Twing has some interesting tools for tracking the hottest links and conversations. Most popular links, threads, and forums are all ranked, and RSS feeds are available for each. Twing says that the most popular thread on the Internet right now is called "longest ever thread." While we don't doubt this is accurate, we'll leave it up to you to decide how practical you find it...

Heh, there's a few search results for me, even though neither DC, asmcommunity or flatasm boards are indexed :)

Maybe they decided not to index the best forums on the web because those already have a great search engine of their own :)
