Adventures with Rollyo
Okay, this step took me a lot longer than predicted. The steps to create a searchroll are not difficult, but choosing the databases to include was a challenge. You can't use a site that relies on an index for its searches (which eliminated some of the sites for my first attempt) and the url for the site has to be short enough to fit on a single line in that box (as I discovered on my second attempt). So on my third try I created healthinfo using some of the websites I always use from TCCL's reference page and it worked. The other thing I was a little surprised about was all the ads that appear as part of the search results.
