this opportunity to point out that, since I obviously have no life, I
spent this Easter tinkering with and updating Spacesearch.

So, here's a URL that I carefully collected and have been saving for a
special occasion. Consider my actually taking the time to pass
commentary on it as an extra special bonus just for you.

The cgi now approximates the javascript functionality in a way it
hasn't done for well over a year, and it finally gets the integrated
help I've been meaning to add for ages.

Yay, me.

This has been a public service announcement in your best interests.
Now all I'm waiting for is Altavista USA to notice that the ISO639
code for Czech is really cz, as used by all the other altavista
servers. Being another level of indirection is one thing, but working
around typos is too much.
