Okay, I bet this is posted _somewhere_, but humor me... 

What parts of the site is it possible to use the Search engine on, now? 
Seems like everywhere I try says it's not allowed.

Yeah...it would be great to be able to search through your private messages for messages from one specific member, but I haven't been able to figure out how to do that.

It had to be disabled, sorry.  One carelessly broad search will bring the site down for everyone.

Not to be pesky (note by the time it took me to rediscover this, I am not nagging ;)

I wonder, would it perhaps be possible to limit the search engine so that it does a more narrow search by default.  Say a maximum number of topics or a restricted list of results in any one burst?  Control the engine itself, instead of relying on the users not to mess up? 

I wouldn't mind having to run multiple searches, perhaps changing the range slightly each time until I found what I was looking for.  Having none, though, it is quite a sizable site to find things on.

In the end we pretty much need our own dedicated server.  That takes money and, more importantly, time :-p
