    Thanks AS! The search function is much more usable now.

    I'm glad Knotty brought this up. It seemed most times I searched I was getting 500 hits. If I couldn't remember the member name or the correct forum, to narrow it down, I usually just gave up.

    The "Search" function is your friend!

    Your results should be MUCH MUCH better.
    THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!!

    I always figured there was something inherent in the BB s/w. Now I can skip the Google bypass.

    Ok, if the need arises, keep me in mind for tag normalization. I am really geeky about taxonomy.. comes from spending too much time with database administration, software configuration management, and asset management (photography).

    Good to know; thanks. I wish Gmail supported partial word searches. And, Gmail has no regular expression (wildcard) searches!

    Um, a most curious "benefit" for Donating Members.. guess that's why I'm not in sales. Thanks for researching/fixing the issue.
