    Hi Pat,

    We would all like to be able to use Search again. But as Leif explained in his <!post=Newsflash,250092>Newsflash<!/post>, searching is a heavy load on the Lounge server. Perhaps you have noticed the increase in sudden slowdowns when loading a post over the last few weeks; it had become so bad that the server was about to grind to a halt. Searching turned out to be the most significant factor in this, so Claude had to decide to disable it temporarily. He doesn't like it, I don't like it, you don't like it, but something had to be done.

    People are working on a solution behind the scenes, but unfortunately we don't know yet when it will be operative. Let's all hope that it will be soon!

    It would be nice to know whether any action will soon be taken, such as to put the Lounge on a server with enhanced Grunt. Is there any timescale available, even a vague one? It's such an essential resource that a reduction in service is really quite sad!

    Thanks!
