Hello!  The best thing you can do is try to think like a computer.  What the
computer that processes your search request does is search for your keywords
(each different keyword should be separated by a space) in previous mailing
list posts and IC documentation.  Just try to think about which words you
could search for that would be in a post with the information you want.  If
a certain word is repeated more than once in a post, or is in its subject
heading, it's even more likely to be returned as the result of a search for
that word.  Also, be sure to check both the Google and Swich results.
Having both of those available is great.
