Try this syntax in a simple alta vista search:

"search terms in inverted commas" host:miskatonic.org

for example:

"maltese falcon" host:miskatonic.org

I don't know if the advanced alta vista search supports the 'host:' option (I would imagine it does). Advanced has the edge over simple because you can do stuff like this:

hard AND boiled NEAR hammett

Or maybe Bill already has an archive search facility up on the r-a site?
