Are the Archives gone, or did I lose my mind?

    I'm not finding the archives - either in the general layout index of the forums or in the drop down location menu in 'search'.
    Were these removed intentionally, for example, due to bandwidth or storage expense, etc.?

    1 other thing: is there any way to enable 'search' for a term that is otherwise too short. I needed to search for an old post of mine about Windows XP and problems associated w/automatic updating as of SP1, I belive - but "XP" is too short a word to use in search....

    I think Eric is hashing through issues with the database still, so the archives may have temporarily gone away.

    As for the search, it's disabled now so I can't test it, but try this once it's back: combine the "XP" with some other common word that is likely to be in the post you want, e.g. "Win XP".
