Got me! I'm just a TDU (Typical Dumb User)!

I recall someone posted a way *other* than what I do to find it, but I
can't remember it (and never wanted to become a Google expert either).

*BUT* what I use is the "site:centos" as a parameter (for me, usually in
advanced search, but I guess it works normally too).

Someday I'll need to look that up. But I'm afraid of the number of hits
I'll get, even within the list, on "Google"!  =>:-O

IUC, that would be the ref I mentioned that I can't remember? *sigh*

They say your memory's the 2nd thing to go!
