How to Find What You Want at www.draglist.com
By Bill Pratt
We occasionally get questions about how to access a particular piece of
data at The Drag Racing List. For instance, "I have a photo that shows
the driver's competition license number, but not the driver. How do I
search Draglist.com to find who owns that comp number?" Here's a refresher
course on how to find the info you need at Draglist.com.
There are three lists for each category:
That's way too much info to see on one screen of data. It's actually
about three screens wide at 800 x 600 resolution. All you have to do to see
the data to the right is use the scroll bar on your browser.
BUT, each file is about a megabyte big, so scrolling to find that you
want is impractical on a search. If you are looking for a particular piece
of info that may not appear on the first screen, all you have to do is use
your browser's FIND function. On Internet Explorer, it's the Control and F
keys, pressed together. A little box will come up. Enter what you want and
click Find Next. It will take you to the first occurrence of that. Just keep
repeating until you find what you want.
Also, don't forget that we have an on-site search engine that only looks
at Draglist pages. Since we now have more than 900 pages of data, it's a MUST!
The onsite search engine is at the top of each page, right under the Draglist
logo. Click on SEARCH ENTIRE SITE. A box will come up. Put in what you want
and click GO! Just like any other search engine, you will get a list of Draglist
pages that have the word you asked for. Open each one of those pages and use
the FIND function as described above to find the exact thing you need.
This is a great way to find a driver or crewchief or owner or hometown or
WHATEVER without having to scroll down through the entire lists. We are now
up to 150 megabytes of data at Draglist Online, so that could take a while
without a little search engine help!
And remember, you can always drop me a line if you are looking for a
particular piece of information that you can't find at The Drag Racing
List. Our email address is located on each page.
Happy New Year, everyone!
