Well then let's move the search facility into the timeout forum since it is useless
(That was a joke).
I find that when i am looking for something I enter the keywords into the "find all matches" box, then select "search topic titles only" and also select "display results as topics".
I just did this using "mega ste" as the keywords and got 164 matches.
When I tried this but instead of searching within "topic titles only" i searched within "post subjects and message text" I got 1000 matches - which I assume is the limit for any given search.
I find that the first method I described here often returns the most useful and relevant hits.
If not you can throw me in the timeout forum
(That was another joke).
