    The search function slowed down the server and I think crashed it once....which would you rather have, no sdn, or an sdn w/o search? <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />

    In any case, I have some threads bookmarked, so if you need something in particular, please ask. :)

    Hopefully the search function will be fixed soon!

    I estimate what day the topic i remember last seeing and I use the ctrl+f function to search for the topic of interest. So low tech i know but it works :)

    Also, if you know a specific poster posted on the thread you're looking for, click "view recent posts" from their profile, and you can find the threads. :)

    this only works for less prolific posters. e.g. if you try looking for a thread under "view recent posts" by doctora foxy, you are back to square one <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />
