    On topic: this is regarding tech searches for the 80 section so as not to annoy you-know-who...
    (Disclaimer: the presence of this disclaimer was for Junk's benefit ;))

    anyway, I'm fed up with this search engine. One of us (Me or It) are not too smart. I use the Advanced features and I still can't find stuff. I mean I just put in "oil filter" for the last 600 days and it comes back with only 37 hits. Is that unlikely or what....?

    what's with this thing?

    grrrr.....

    who's board is this (who runs it)? I know of a great search engine that could be added on pretty easily - that works great. If the powers that be want to talk i would love to help out.

    e - most feel the same way. That's why there are so many posts concerning this in the proper area for this post ... the IH8Mud updates and comments area :D

    HP - send a PM to Woody - he always appreciates suggestions and offers for help.

    I know he's got some things in the works, but things to take time and keep in mind he has a job and works on his junk when not beating on it or rolling it.

    I agree the search engine is lame. Living with what we have if you want volume just use "filter" in your search, 1005 entries. I used "oil filter" and selected "match as phrase" and got 293 entries.
