How bout that. I haven't posted here a lot lately, and on the other forum I frequent, names aren't normally used. I do see after returning here that names aren't used as much as I "remember" them being used in the past.

Interesting.

I guess I'm guilty of sometimes forgetting too.

....the Booming Woofer is interesting too! An EP125 or 175 though. Hmmmmm.....


EDIT: Yeah; I know. A Wok cycling in and out would likely be invisible looking on-axis. \:\(

Anybody else having issues with the Advanced "search" tool not pulling back results when it should?

I've been using some of the advanced searching for years and it does not seem to be working like in the past.

For example, say I want to search for "subject line only" for HD DVD. I've tried everything from "HD DVD", "hd dvd", +hd +dvd, +HD +DVD, etc. In addition to pulling back everything in the last 3 years and I get "no results".

There is a thread right now in the with HD DVD right in the title.

Okay, I've added the first name field - I'll ask Jim if he can port the names from the old installation.

I see that we are able to search for some things, but not HD DVD - I can't figure that out at all. I'll ask Jim that one too!

Amie, I don't think I'm getting an email sent to me when someone sends me a PM. At least the last few PMs sent to me didn't seem to generate one. The PMs were sent to multiple recipients. Don't know if that would have anything to do with it, but I thought I'd mention it.

NEVERMIND! I just went into "My Preferences" and found that the appropriate option had been reset to "No" rather than "Yes." I'd guess that happened when the software was changed. I reset it to "Yes" which should take care of the problem.

It is corrected. Thanks so much for sending me a test message. Very thoughtful of you. \:\)

It's gonna take some time to get used to the private messages looking just like a thread on the forum. When I sent you a PM reply, for a moment, I thought I had mistakenly posted in a thread.

It isn't the thread mode that will take getting used to. I really like that you can see the initial PM closely followed by your reply, just like a thread. The disconcerting thing is that the PM thread mode looks exactly like a forum thread. If there could be some sort of obvious difference (colors? font?,something?), while still maintaining the thread mode, it would be easier on my nerves.

Oh phooey! I will get used to checking at the top of the page to see that I'm in the private message area and not in a forum area. It's no big deal.

Thanks Amie,

There is something definately going on with searching. I just tried searching for various words and it was hit or miss, even though the words did exist in the subject line on threads.

I'm sure it has something to do with the queries on the database or limitations.

Sir Quack,

As Amie knows, I distrust this new board layout until I get used to it.

I just answered your PM and figured I had to click on "Submit" (to what---bondage? ) in order to send it. Did you receive it? The old boards used to say "message sent" or something sensible like that.

Regards,

Alan
