    Hey Mods,

    I know that lots of people ask the same question over and over and that can be rather annoying as well as a waste of space. I see some of the Mods have sig files that encourage people to use the Search function before asking questions.

    With all due respect to the mods and in all fairness to the users the seach function SUCKS! If any of the terms you are searching for is less than 4 characters it will not do a search. Try doing a seach on USB. Won't happen. If any of the terms you specify are less than 4 chars the entire search fails. Try searching for "USB disk mode". Don't bother, it will fail.

    So please, to help us all, get a better Search function. That way we can really come down hard on those people that continuously ask the same questions over and over without searching first.

    OK, turning off my RANT mode...

    This has been discussed in 2 other threads. You can use the google search below the regular search to search for 3 letter words.

    Sorry to be such a newb but where are you finding the Google search? I don't see any such option under Search.

    People have been begging for us to add the 3 letter search function, we finally do and nobody uses it. Oh well, here is a screen shot of where you can find it.

    OK Fair enough...The problem is that you can only get the Google search from the top level menu. You don't get this option from the search at the top of a posting.

    Thanks for the screen shot.
