A new SearchResearch Challenge that asks if you can make a video that recreates a flight over the southwestern US. Do you know how? (It's not that hard, believe me.) Once you do this, the world will seem different to you.

This week's answer --- two ways to find difficult to find content! (1) How to use INURL: and when to go to theThe Internet Archive, and (2) Digging into the HTML to find text that's hidden on the page itself. This is not your traditional online research! Search on.

A difficult pair of SearchResearch Challenges for this week. Can you figure out how to recover/restore broken image links? And can you find the cost of a plate of kaymak in Mountain View? These require a bit more than the ordinary search methods. Solve these and show your skills!

The answer to the "black racer" question (and the disgruntled author Challenge)... both rely on using the SITE: operator in interesting ways. Hope this helps you in a future search of your own.
