Any of you who are PTG members have any insight or tips in searching the PTG's "Pianotech Archive" for info? It seems to be a very awkward process.

The search results are not formatted very well, even with the improvemwents recently made to the search engine, and I was just wondering if there's some insider trick to this. I'm not a PTG member, I was just searching for some info on Heintzman uprights, and while I did get some good info, I just find trying to sift through the search results very awkward.

Whiler I'm on the subject, how many of you have experience working on Heintzman uprights?

Given the enormity of the archive, (280Mb of text!) I think it would be far better if you could display up to 100 messages - or more - on a single page rather than 10 at time.

I'm considering downloading the entire thing, but I have no idea what an "mbox" file is... Presumably this is compatible with Outlook, etc.?
