I've written a primitive search engine for the Support Forum Archives
at the bottom of this page. I say "primitive" because it's just a
front end to grep and counts the number of matching lines. So, you
should probably avoid punctuation because it would be misinterpreted
as a grep metacharacter. Stick to key words or fragments separated by
spaces. And it's case insensitive, of course.

And it just greps the monthly archive files. To report any finer
granularity or to highlight the matches would require some major
restructuring. But at least the order is better than chronological.
