Hidden Share Revealer
Ever wondered what secret/private folders your buddy in office has shared on his PC? Well, now you can!

Display Search Scopes in the Search DoropDown and Advanced Search page
Most of you all would probably be knowing this, but for the newbie out there who is just getting into MOSS's Enterprise Search features this would probably prove useful...

Crawl Log Exporter
As part of setting up Enterprise Search for a major IT company, I had to create content sources for a number of web sites hosted on the company’s intranet. Pretty easy you say, well yes. But the problems arose when MOSS began crawling the websites. There were more Crawl Errors in the crawl log than Crawl Successes.
