    Late last night there was some server updating going on. (I don't mean the usual late night back up). Probably messed something up with that. I am sure they will fix it.

    I was gonna say strange things happen around here at 2:30 AM -- but the search DOES appear to still be hosed.
    Putting in a call to Admin and checking the hamsters that power the servers..

    In the meantime -- bing and google have this joint pretty well indexed and up to date. Just include USMessageBoard as an item.

    Well, the good news, I'm no longer getting an error message.

    The bad news...I'm now getting "no results found" on all searches. :(

    Now search is blocked from 2010 to present...

    ... (and they wonder why I 'dredge' up so many old posts.)

    Can anyone post the link to Gwen Ifill's obit...

    ... it should be in Political Obituaries...

    ... or a dedicated thread.

    Thank you.

    Yesterday, I wanted to find an article I previously posted so I clicked on “Your Content” under my user name and got an error message. Today, when I clicked on “Your Content” the error message was gone, but so were the articles I had posted. The only thing that showed were my last two posts made moments ago. Pages of prior articles just disappeared. Does anyone know how I can get them back?

    If the post(s) in question was rated by one of the other members, you can still find it by going to your personal menu, (the pull down at the top right of the page), and selecting "ratings received". If you rated someone else's post on that thread, you can still find the thread by selecting "ratings given". These seem to be unaffected by whatever happened yesterday.

    No ratings given/received? Looks like you are SOL until the mods/admin fix the search function.

    Hope this helps!
