After eight years of downtime, Friend of G&T Mick Hayes has relaunched the Red Dwarf search engine Smegoo!, ready to serve literally all of your Red Dwarf searching needs.
What with me being an Internetless prick pre-1999 I don’t remember the original incarnation of the engine (masterminded by Mick and Jeoff Forbes and shown in all its glory here, through the site’s DwarfWiki entry), but it seems this relaunch is very, very impressive indeed.
Now (ironically, given the name) powered by Google, Smegoo! provides an incredibly powerful and concise search of all the best Red Dwarf resources such as TOS, PlanetSmeg, Pile O Smeg, The Holoship Enlightenment, G&T and various other databases such as Wikipedia and IMDb. The upshot is you get relevant, high-quality results without all the crap that your average Google trawl would bring.
On top of that, famous scripts webpage Silicon Hell is fully indexed, and the thought of a complete set of Dwarf transcripts being searchable frankly makes me overheat with joy. It’s a great addition to the Dwarf online community, helped along by the fact that is both a great idea coupled with excellent execution.
