    I have been wanting to bring this up but didnt know what to say. Well, anyway, when I have used the search it kicks out tons of posts that when I have read through them seem to not adress my original question (that is if I can remember my original question after reading for so long) [​IMG] I dont mean to make fun, maybe it is just my slow computer but it takes me forever. Is there any way to better narrow a search?
    The only thing I find useful is if I am looking for a certain user I do a search on Author.

    using multiple terms with the AND function helps a lot too

    instead of

    Incubator

    search for

    Incubator AND cooler AND thermostat

    to narrow down the results.

    The more words, will narrow the search. But I have enjoyed reading, even though my eyes get tired. [​IMG]
