    "Is there a way to search the archive?"
    There is the standard google search right there on the main page. If you want 
    to customize this, all you have to do is visit the google advanced search 
    page and enter the appropriate site info. For example, if you enter 
    fer3.com/arc/img, you will be searching all of the files in that specific 
    folder which includes most of the attachments. The linked files are in 
    fer3.com/arc/imgx. Note that there are lots of simple tricks you can use to 
    find specific files. If you select "fer3.com/arc" for the site and then 
    search for the text "sep 2005" you will get files primarily from that month. 
    Google's indexing is not complete (for any site) but it is extensive and 
    remarkably it often includes text extracted by OCR from image files. This 
    sort of searching will not be able to find files that have no text associated 
    with them.
