I love this site!
As it has grown, trying to keep up with everything is a bit like drinking from a fire hose! I would have no time to work in the shop (or eat or sleep!) if I tried to read everything and comment on everything that deserves a comment, which is most everything!

One thing that I think would make it a bit easier would be the search functionality. I know it is provided by Google, but I was wondering if they have any other configurations or options.
A couple of things that would help would be:

(All of these could be a user setting?)

- Display of thumbnail with displayed results.
- Display original posting date
- Ability to sort by date, original poster, etc.
- Ability to display more results per page (10, 25, 50, 100)

Thanks for a great site!

Especially when I gt down in my back, I have more time than most to lurk around here, and I can’t see all there is to see here. I do have somthing that I feel is a benefit to the site as a whole though that I do everytime I get the chance. As a matter of fact it is exactly what I am doing at this very moment.
From the home page I click on view all under the forums section. Then right above the list of forum topics I click where it says view unanswered topics. Then I look through and find unanswered topics that I may be able to offer some assistance on.
I think this is of help because as many people as we have here I don’t want anyone’s question or or problems to go completely unanswered. As a matter of fact, if even a tenth of the members here would do the same, I honestly beleive that we’d be have enough knowledge between us to answer all topics. Then noone (especially new members) would feel left out.
