You probably typed only one term, and it was pretty common.
Think of some synonyms. Try adding at least two more specific terms
to your string.
You're probably searching in the wrong place or your search is
too narrow. Maybe you didn't configure your search correctly.
Maybe the information you seek isn't on the Web.
Try omitting some of your search terms. Try
your search on another engine, metasearcher, directory, people search, or
specialty resource. Ask for help.

which maintains cached copies of pages.
This message tells you that your browser can't locate the server
(i.e. the computer that hosts the Web page). It could mean that
the network is busy or that the server
has been removed or taken down for maintenance. Check your

The server you are attempting to contact may be offline, may have
crashed, or may be very busy. Try again later.
Try guessing, experimenting with different top-level domain names
by using the name, brief name, or the acronym.

Note: This doesn't always work. You won't find the American Medical
Association this way. The "ama"
acronym was grabbed first by the American Marketing Association, so
their URL is:
while the American Medical Association had
to settle for
is worth a try.
EXAMPLE: www.dell.com (for Dell Computers);
www.redcross.org (for the American Red Cross)
Finally, if you are using FireFox as your browser or your browser is a recent Netscape upgrade,
type in the word or phrase without anything else
and, if Firefox or Netscape can, they will match it and take you to the site
