A few Changes to the Shortcuts

Ill be posting a complete list of available shortcuts, but there are a few changes to previous ones that were already posted. The two in particular are the stock quote lookup and the zip code lookup. Previously, you could just enter in the stock symbol or the 6 digit zip code and it would return the data. But after a severe server overload this morning, I had to rework some of it. In case you're curious, what was happening was the server was checking to see if every query (even general queries like 'hotels') was a stock quote or a zip code and it was overloading the server. So, now the shortcuts are:

STOCK QUOTES

Just search for Stock yhoo - Notice the addition of "stock". So quotes will only be looked up when the term "stock" is included.

Proper Format: STOCK + STOCK SYMBOL
Example: Stock Yhoo (link)

ZIP CODE LOOKUP

Just search for zip 90210 - Notice the addition of "zip". So zip codes will only be looked up when the term "zip" is included.

Proper Format: ZIP + ZIP CODE
Example: Zip 60195 (link)

So there are the two changes, Hopefully this won't confuse anyone too badly. Sorry about that! :)
