    Search has it's moments of slowness. But does work. However, you need to be logged in.
    Have a community? Have questions?

    Agreed. Although intermittent it does regularly time out or fail to find threads that do exist. I've successfully done a search this morning - I will keep an eye out to see if the search facility donks out when our cousins across the pond wipe the sleep out of their eyes.

    Seriously Dennis - there is a problem with search - the same message keeps coming up from different sources. I know Rudy and I keep jumping on the posts when they appear but we aren't starting these threads
