Yes, search is working : )
I'm still looking into tweaking it. Some points to keep in mind, however:
1: New posts are only indexed every ten minutes.
2: Edits to posts made before the last backup are only reindexed after the next backup runs. So if you make a post today, and edit it, the edit should show up fine after the next ten minute run, but if you edit it tomorrow you won't see it until the next day.
3: If there's REALLY a desire for more than a thousand results... let me know?
