Creating your own Advanced Search webpart in sharepoint 2007

Tom Clarkson is da man!

In the linked post, he gives a great example on how you can create your own custom advanced search box. The great thing about this is that not only can you add your own custom properties as shown in the post prior to this, but you can solve the question we asked in that same post, i.e. the question of actually having dropdowns to narrow down the search options to the user.

Using this, and creating custom search scopes, I think we have a very good playing field for creating highly customized searching capabilities.
