Search malfunction


I don't think the search is working -- every query results in "No results found"

Not doing anything for me -- not even trying...
Just going straight to the "No results" page...

OK -- never mind, I'm an idiot. Fixed by clearing cache/cookies.

The search function is usually unstable. It is very slow. Sometimes i am not getting to the results page. Maybe an integration with google search would be a solution.

jeremy has already stated that he is working on this problem and there will be improvements to the search speed coming soon.

The problem with using google to search is that it hits a maximum number of pages per domain:
http://www.google.com/search?q=-rand...xquestions.org
Results 1 - 10 of about 778,000 from linuxquestions.org

Although if anyone was to donate a dedicated Google search appliance to LQ I'm sure jeremy would welcome it.
