Given that most of the talk on this site is about Windows... and different versions of Windows ... it'd be nice if we could search by them.

Also, forum searching in general sucks. (IMO in my experiences on PHPBB3 and vB)

I'm gunna have to agree, search is a pain in the ass, and it seems to exclude all threads between a certain period of time.
I don't know when exactly, I'd guess between after I joined this forum and before the PHPbb3 upgrade, educated guess based on threads I know exist not coming up in searches.

That could have been down to a broken search index. Those posts should now show up as I changed from phpBB search indexing to MySQL search indexing. It seems much quicker than phpBB's search function as well, especially at indexing...

Maybe people will be more inclined to use the search function now (Me *cough*. Anyways it is nice that I can search anything now, before it would always omit what i was looking for....

well, if the search function doesn't work you can always go to Google and type this in:

Code:
site:betaarchive.co.uk <enter your keywords here>
