If at first you don't succeed , try it differently.

I dunno , i kinda thought the tools (i think more than one was being made) were a bit insensitive to Bens requests. That's why i never used any of them.
He was clear that the wiki server costs money and searching used bandwidth so that was why he made it so only registered users could search.
To make an external app that searched the wiki (used up bandwidth) didn't seem like playing ball to me.

bruce, you know i appreciate you very much but your comment is *censored*,as well as*censored* and furthermore it is miles below your mental abilities ...

1. in my opinion it is massively schizophrenic to put a website online and then expect nobody to use it ...

2. i wish for 6 correct numbers in the lotto every saturday, benoit wishes for no users on the wiki ... looks like we both do not get what we wish ...

this statement is absolutely wrong!
stevedee uses only the results of search engines (duckduckgo as default) so that his tool does not fetch a single byte from the wiki.

4. considering the very modest and mostly non-existent documentation i allow myself (without asking benoit) to use ANY tool that makes my programming day easier and i decide which tool is the best for me

here you are unfortunately very far below your level ... to judge about something that you do not even know ... even I lack the words

but positive is that after several days of dead silence here in the forum at least you "woke up" :-) therefore for you (and every reader) still a beautiful peaceful and sunny sunday
