Well, crap.

by Doc Nickel

Houston, we have a problem, and it's not from the storm. happy.gif

I just noticed that the "ctrl-F" function of both Chrome and Firefox can't look up more than one individual word. It can look up two (or possibly more) in sequence, such as "inflatable bunker", but it can't look up "Doc" and "goggles".

And that's actually a pretty major blow to this project. I was expecting to be able to, for example, find the one early strip where Roger tests the orbital laser platform, by hitting Ctrl-F and entering "Roger, laser". But it won't do that.

And I just looked into adding a custom Google search to the page, but it very much looks like it won't necessarily give me specifically-located results ON the page, it'll just give me the page the results are on.

Crap. I think we're wasting our time here...
