Top Tip

by Charles Pooter

Typing the following in Google will find open directories on the web containing music by the band Nirvana:

-inurl:(htm|html|php) intitle:"index of" +"last modified" +"parent directory" +description +size +(wma|mp3) "Nirvana"

The string above says to Google: "Return results without htm, html or php in the URL, where the title of the page contains the phrase index of and where the page contains the phrases last modified, parent directory and the words description, size, wma or mp3 and Nirvana".

Obviously one can replace Nirvana with Rachmaninoff, The Beatles or Cradle of Filth.

I found this tip whilst reading this post about the rebirth of the command line.
