    We made a search engine, searching only for sig2dat links at sites and I like to know your opinion!

    We designed it to be very simple and usefull

    I wait any comment or site addition request here...

    If you have any idea how to make it better, please write it!

    TODO (which problems I going to solve)
    - stop-words (don't search for and, or, with etc.) DONE
    - ranking by popularity (not by the classical ranking method: abc ) DONE
    - make crawler faster and better...
    - index sig2dat related forums (going to be hard work)
    - index extensions (working, but have problems with movies from up2dat - their files sometimes have .avi.dat ext.)

    Probaly needs classification of files, for example did a search for "matrix" and it came up with a varity of files some avi and some game cd images for me i could easliy tell what files were but for noobs they might download unintended files.

    It would problay be eaiser for the search to discrimate when it comes to avi's mpegs exes ect but when it comes to cd images(bins & cues) which could be games, movies or programs probaly be harder.

    Reviews of files by members, maybe a star ratting out of five?

    A bit more color on the page

    Looks like great start, although i doubt i would use it just too much crap and corruption on kazaa.
