    Those come with the new MSN Search Toolbar Suite.

    BTW: I cannot work without the MSN Search Toolbar now. The speed is fantastic, and I no longer care too much about where I store stuff. I just store it somewhere and rely on smart search tools to get me to it in a hurry. It's indispenable.

    FlexWiki is a very interesting wiki system. I was wondering: is there only people from Microsoft working on it or also people outside of the company?

    I find also the idea of the beamer quite nice. But is Dashboard in Tiger not also based on the same idea?

    Hey I was trying out the FlexWiki site. Sorry but I managed to break it by hitting Go on the Search page with no text entered... I was curious to see whether it would retrieve the contents of the entire site. Which brings me to my question about Wiki's, is there a way to generate a printed documentation of the entire site's content?
    We are considering using it for our internal Technical Specifications and would require this functionality at times.

    Flatliner - it depends on the particular wiki implementation. With FlexWiki it should be pretty easy to build that functionality using its WikiTalk scripting language.
