You may be interested to know that the long-awaited Search facility has been launched. You can find it on the right hand side of this page.
Initially the search is extended to the last three months only - in order to see what impact that has on the performance of the database, however aim is to increase its scope in the near future.
For those of you interested how/why Search is being launched and how it works you may find these links helpful:

I asked it once to you on these messageboards. And there it is. I see it as a Christmas present....
Hope that it will cover the whole forum up to 2005 in some forseeable future...
Kind regards and with esteem,

Anyone got a copy of 'Ode to Joy' to hand...?
Seriously, (belated) thanks, Andrew. Should come in handy.

Addendum to message 4.
although, as I said in message 4, I am thankful for the new search facility, I did already some tests, but the three months limit gives at least only some 8 hits for a particular term. To be useful it will have to be extended to the whole archive of the history messageboards...I think...or is the impact on all the BBC messageboards?
Kind regards and with esteem,

Andrew, have all of the searchable records of posts vanished before the last year?
There are a great many posts and threads that don't appear in searches?

Andrew Host, why do I have to give a password before being able to post? I fill out the form but it claims they never heard of me, then its, 'forgot your password', (which I have not ) and get an e-mail to give a new password, happens all the time. Logging on to Message Boards a sign reads, 'sign in'. What should I do to prevent this bother? Thanks, rhmnney
