there are some useful query strings in google search terms. if you find a specific directory google shows you what you needs. :) maybe some security problems of the future about indexing directory structure. here are the some examples;

"parent directory " /appz/ -xxx -html -htm -php -shtml -opendivx -md5 " -md5sums

"parent directory " /mp3/ -xxx -html -htm -php -shtml -opendivx -md5 " -md5sums

What the..?
Searching for the first string above yields a first hit with this in the preview:

   parent directory... appz xxx html htm php

isn't the minus operator supposed to make that _not_ happen? Most of the rest of the results have those words in them too....

I just went and did a search for hello and then added "-[word in top result]" a bunch of times, and each time the result didn't have the former top result. So google isn't broken. Just that particular search seems to not work. Weird....
