Did you notice on the Dilbert.com home page that there's a new search box above the strip? You can now search the entire Dilbert archive by key word. Once you find the strip you like, you can easily have it put on a mug, t-shirt, mouse pad, or water bottle.

You can also order the strip for your PowerPoint presentation or other business use, all online.

Or you can just read, for example, all of the Ratbert strips at once. Or all of the strips that mention Mission Statements, or sales, or Unix, or whatever. I just spent about an hour looking for my own favorites.

I've waited 15 years for this capability. It took a huge effort to manually enter all of the keywords. I have to say the result is quite awesome.

Whoops, I meant xkcd as my other favorite comic, User Friendly is in rerun mode for who knows how long.

Scott, this is awesome! I entered one line that I remember from my favorite strip of all time, and the comic came up: July 12, 1995 - friggin' awesome! I found all the Topper strips just as easily; since my cube-mate IS Topper, I'm very impressed. Great job! Of course, User Friendly did this first, but I can have 2 favorite comics, right?

Searches "gooky"

Ah, thank you. I've been looking for this one FOREVER!

thanks..

I've waited not 15, but sure 5 years for this capability. It took a huge effort to do it by my own (http://flapdoodle.de/askDilbert/searchTag) and did manually enter the words of some strips. But as you can guess, only some strips are searchable.. So thank you for this stripsearch.

But, i have a wish: a tagcloud. It would be fun.

Late to this party, but did you have some random guy set this up and transcript it all? There's a website started a while back for webcomic owners http://www.ohnorobot.com/ that functions similarly, but the strips are transcribed by the readers themselves, to save on time.

Awesome. I had searched the old-fashioned way for the Best_Strip_Ever: The etch-a-sketch strip - but gave up after about an hour. Now I have my very own coffee mug with the strip speeding its way to my home. I'm very happy.

I am not, however, completely blissed out.

For that, I would need to be able to unite the Best_Coffee_Mug_Ever with the Best_Strip_Ever. The Best_Coffee_Mug_Ever is made by Contigo. I can stash it in my purse - full of coffee and it never spills. I can leave Seattle with fresh hot coffee - and any remaining brew will still be hot when I roll into Portland three hours later.

Here is a link to the product: http://www.gocontigo.com/autoseal-stainless-steel-travel-mug.html.

If your people were able to work a deal with their people - the resulting awesomeness would be almost too much for this small world of ours.

That was a lot of work just to be able to call this blog entry 'Strip Search'.
I'm sure you had the name long before you had the capability.

I love the fact that my very first search - "sphincter" - resulted in one unique strip.

Thanks to your new search, I now know that Phil, the Prince of Insufficient Light has only been seen in one strip in the last 7 years.... truly sad.

Finally (!), I was able to find all the strips with accounting trolls...
For some odd reason, those are the most hillarious. Thanks!

Btw, your drawing style improved drastically during all those years :)

Hey Scott.
Hi my name is Matt and i live in australia (for security reasons i call myself dzonemrcookie online) I absoultly love Dilbert. My house is has some of your products with a small month calender and the day to day calender which was the reason i found you. My faveourite character is Dogbert because of his humor and his unusual ideas. Thanks so much for Dilbert!

Awesome! I had been looking for a strip I remember from long ago but could not find it until the keywords became available and I found it instantly turned out it was published on Halloween in 1995. Keywords are a neat Trick and thanks for the Treat!

Keywords are nice, but you could simply put in text all the dialogs, like xkcd does.
Or maybe an OCR.

Why didn't you just hire an intern to catalogue it all? They're cheap, sometimes free, somewhat competent, and will do anything you say.

All of a sudden, I feel like running a Dilbert search on Asok.

so you can find every strip relating to Ratbert, but not coconut milk...
