I seem to pick them up as I go along. This group is actually a great
source of google-fu enhancements - I believe this is where I found out
about "letmegooglethatforyou".

Of course you can do any Google search and then look at what Google puts
in your Location: bar. Saving that URL means you can repeat the same
search later, but you can also analyze it to find out about some useful
tricks (and "letme..." uses the same everything except for the domain
name). So your site search would also work with

Of course it would be relatively easy to write a Python program that
used the browser module to do this kind of search ...
