The SA forums have been going strong since ’99, and have been responsible for a remarkable number of memes (including, it must be said, All Your Base). Much of this has been stored in an archive – but, alas, the archive had little to no searchability.

A goon just built an index and search engine for it – http://www.dassaas.tk/

It costs :tenbux: for an account at SA, and another :tenbux: for archives access. You can search without an account, but the links will all click to a message telling you to register and buy an archives account. Still, there’s surely many in this community with archives access already, and they could surely use the help of others in finding these precious primary documents. I thought it’d be a shame if nobody brought it to your attention.

I have no affiliation with SA (aside from being a poster there), and no affiliation with the creators of the search engine.

I know this is bad form, registering just to post this. For that, I apologize.
edit – the search index, at present, only goes back to 2006 or so. Nonetheless, that’s a LOT of newly accessible data.
