Visual Basic for Network Applications by Simon Collin, 1998

Sometimes I order used books off of Amazon.  By the time they arrive at the house, sometimes a couple weeks later, I think to myself, “Why on earth did I order this book?”  In this case, the book cost $7.56 with shipping.  Because we have an aging VB6 application at work, I thought this book might be relevant.  Probably not – you can never go back, really. 

I had to laugh at this list of “General Search Engines” printed in Appendix A:

  • Excite
  • InfoSeek
  • Yahoo!
  • Lycos
  • Yell
  • Yahoo! UK
  • Alta Vista

Can you think of a currently prominent – if not universal – search engine that is not listed here?
