    I hope the search function does come back. It is a great tool that allows the user to get the most from this site. There is a lot of knowledge here to be gained.

    The search function will be back, but I have to find a relatively slow period to rebuild the searchindex table. If I do it when the site is busy, the site will run slow as hell and the database might crash again. I'll try to get it re-indexed and back up this weekend...Eric

    Surfing without the search option is like looking for a house with no visible address numbers.

    "A slow period"... With the war on? good luck...

    Do you need a "slow period" or can you do the work with GT offline? I'd suggest simply putting up a sticky saying that GT will be down on a certain day, so everybody take a GT holiday. You might be able to get a slow period just by asking, but I don't know how much of a slowdown you need.
