Maybe I can dig up an old Series/1 computer - it supports 512k (words) + it has .2 MIPS of pure raw power.  The hard drive weight to memory ratio is about 1 kilo per megabyte.

Board is smokin' fast right now. But search is not really working. Searching for "Baud" came up with nothing.
 :wtf:


I hope you fixed something, and it stays this fast. :)

Everything has been working well and has been pretty fast for the last couple of days.

Search is working fine for me.

Search will always be slow because of what it does. After all there are 428,519 posts in 34,256 topics to search through.

Noticeably slower than 2 months ago. I just use Google to search the site now.  I use it for most places.

Google search: baud site:http://thesurvivalpodcast.com

I also use https everywhere, and keep signed out of google whenever I use the site. I an a bit paranoid though. But only because I know what power google has, and I am afraid of it.

That'll work, but I'm pretty sure Google can only search the boards that are visible to unregistered guests.

They have probably registered and posted enough to search the board. The board is running pretty common software, google is very smart.

With a major big box retailer, I\we have done some testing to see how good. The travel,  shoppping and news portion is unbelivable. With shopping I could put an test\fake item out there with a fake SKU at a local store in BFE and do a google search including the store number of local zipcode. The Item and price will usually show on google shopping. If the end site is quick enough, it will find it as you type into the box. The autofill servers many purposes, one it to find new stuff it has not logged. After you search the item (giving you a price check) the item will continue to be searched weekly for over a year.

(different project)I watch logs at times to see where the traffic comes from I will post something, and 3 people will look at and test something I wrote. Sure enough, I will get a few "users" from wierd areas (like Manilla) that look at or watch an entire 3 hour video, and download the transcprition. Do a little diggin on the IP, and it is a known web crawler for google or one of the thousands of companies it has purchased.

I would love to know the basics on how it works. Even people inside Google do not know the full potential of that search bar. Want to see your site clime in google rankings? Use some Google open source for a bit.

The forum is running incredibly slow for the last 45 minutes or so for me.

Thanks, Archer!

I should have mentioned that it sped up after I posted, but I've been a bit busy today.
