    The search function is seriously broken. Something has changed in the past week. The search returns do not show posts I have made in which I know I used the words I am searching for.

    Try Google site search in the meantime until they get it fixed

    In the Google searchbox start with 'site:usmessageboard.com' (without the apostrophes) then g5000 and the search terms you are looking for.

    Yeah, the other day, I searched Bitcoin, nothing. So I was going to post a thread on this topic since I thought it was odd no one had broached the topic. Then I went to look at the Stock Market sub-forum, very first thread at the top. . . Does anyone invest in Bitcoin?

    That's pretty sad. . . .

    i had an issue searching for something yesterday as well...

    i forget exactly, but the list seemed all scrambled and apparently missing most recent posts.

    The lack of a search capability isn't helping the mods do our jobs either.

    I've actually been doing that. It is occasionally successful. More successful than the forum search in its current broken condition.
