Well, I've been reading this site for 8 years...I finally used the Forum Search!! I've seen many times that Rob you would suggest that people search there. Well, it is great! I searched several topics and the answers were so on point. Lots easier than searching on the compiter!! Thanks, Rob! People..if you have a question, use the little search box way up at the top left!

If I am not mistaken, the archive search is limited to titles but not to content within messages. The effectiveness of the search is a bit dependent on the title the contributor gives to the question. Something to remember.

If I’m wrong about that, Rob, please correct me.

Both the Archive Search and Forum Search rely on keywords found in the title and the text of messages. Periodically I delete irrelevant and outdated messages, but many are quite useful and interesting glimpses into the past, especially the Archives. It's surprising how much information from all those years ago is still relevant.

Happily stand corrected and thank you, Rob.
