    3.7..97        Load latest version of webserver software (Netscape's FastTrack v2.01) and loaded latest version of search engine software (OpenText's Livelink 7.1).    Completely reindexed every database against the new software.  We appreciate your patience. The system should be humming. 

    2.5..97       NEWER SEARCH CAPABILITY!!!!!   Streamlined and compact.     This new search allows you to view the search criteria 'hits' in context to the document and then go directly to the hit in the document via a link using the red ball hIT.    In addition, your results are now 50 at a time on one line versus four lines.      Although they remain alphabetized, they are easier to view in categories.  Follow these simple directions located at the top of the search pages for your convenience.
