    Really glad the search is again functioning. I know it has been for awhile now but just thought I say it has saved me many hours of posting and waiting for replies. Hope it never leaves again.

    Re: Search

    Oh dear, the current planetary alignment only holds for the next week or so... See this CNN article: <A target="_blank" HREF="http://www.cnn.com/2004/TECH/space/03/23/planetary.lineup.ap/">Rare stargazing spectacle offered by 5 planets
    Array won't happen again for three decades</A>

    Does this mean we'll be without search for the next 30 years?

    Re: Search

    The only problem with search working again is that despite ALWAYS trying to search for something before I post, within minutes of posting I get an answer "try this thread" - Dohhh.

    I usually have at least a few attempts at searching before I display my ignorance to the world, but sometimes I am just not looking in the right places. <img src=/S/brickwall.gif border=0 alt=brickwall width=25 height=15>

    Re: Search

    I think that is the problem with searching in general, whether in the Lounge, help files, KnowledgeBase or Google - you need to know the answer at least partly in order to be able to specify "good" search terms. But that is precisely what makes sites such as this one successful: if you ask a question, there is almost always someone who has seen the problem or something like it before. He/she may not know the exact answer, but knows enough to make a search work.

    > attempts at searching before I display my ignorance to the world,

    Don't sweat it. I've been a keen fan of Searching for ages, and Hans just (very kindly!) told me to go check two of MY OWN threads. Of course, in my case we can put it down to old age .....

    Re: Search

    Now that's not very fair to Karen. Or perhaps to me. I'm not sure. And I'm not sure either that she might not be sure. Maybe we should ask sure ....

    Hi Chris...

    At the risk of once again displaying my ignorance I didn't even realise I could check my own threads until I read your reply ... will make life a lot easier, particularly when I forget to add a post to a watch list....
