From: Isaac Koi <isaackoi.nul> Date: Tue, 11 Oct 2011 09:33:07 +0100 Archived: Tue, 11 Oct 2011 08:17:07 -0400 Subject: Fast Search NICAP APRO & MUFON Journals/Bulletins I thought it worth mentioning on this List a technique I've been using during the last week or so to do very fast searches of multiple issues of the MUFON Journal plus APRO Bulletins and NICAP Bulletins. I'll include some links below for ease of reference to this material (and a few other UFO publications). I know the existence of some of these journals online has been mentioned on this List (although I don't recall anyone referring to the NICAP "UFO Investigator" journals being online or the other NICAP material shared by CUFOS), but thought the search technique was worth highlighting. I've been very impressed by the speed of this technique. I wish I'd been able to do such searches earlier... I have posted a relatively long description of the relevant search technique (with screenshots and examples) on the Abovetopsecret.com forum at: http://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread762746/pg1 The short version, however, is as follows: (1) Step 1: Download the material you want to be able to search (e.g. journals published by MUFON, APRO and NICAP). I've included the main links below. (2) Step 2: Download a free piece of software called “PDF- XChange Viewer”. Link below. (3) Step 3: Use the search functions in “PDF-XChange Viewer” to search an entire directory of journals in one go. Screenshots are included in my post on Abovetopsecret.com at the link above. (4) Step 4 (Optional) : Make the filenames more informative (e.g. by adding a prefix giving the name of the relevant Journal, using a free tool such as “Bulk Rename Utility”).
