Is this not working for anyone else? I have tried over the last couple of days to use it (and from a few different computers at all) but it keeps saying that it can't access the search daemon. Is this happening to anyone else?

Perhaps I've missed some announcement or thread about this - it does seem a major issue with the site - but I haven't seen anything. Apologies if there is already something up.

Dave appears unwilling or unable to grapple with it.

It's happened before. Hopefully he will fix it soon.

Still not working for me either - well actually I can search for thread titles, but nothing else.

Inks lied! The search function died!

Those who shout the loudest about respecting “diversity” and the culture of others, cannot stir themselves to respect the French enough to learn their language and understand their culture.

Ya know you can use Google to search the message board.  It's actually better at it.

I believe the simple truth is that they became somewhat alarmed when they realized that I really meant to write what I believed. There is a peculiar parallel between some of our great Northern "liberals" and some of our outstanding Southern liberals.

Some of the people in both classes share the deep-seated convictions that only their convictions can possibly be the right ones. They both inevitably say the same thing: "We know the Negro and what is best for him."

Ahh - that's what I ran my search for, so that's why it worked.

I'll echo dead0man's sentiments. When I'm looking for a thread it's easier to use google, type in the title and, add "atlas forum" or "uselectionatlas.org" on the end of it then to find it with the forum's search function.

Hi,
For now, I've relinked the search button to the Atlas google search page.  Will take some research to figure out how to fix the sphinx search - the service provider was not very helpful in fixing the problem after the upgrade.

Thanks,
Dave

Hi Dave, the new search function is significantly less useful. If the previous system was irreparable, fair enough, but otherwise could we possibly revert?

I miss the "find all topics by" search. Just throwing that out there.

What it was is my birthday is 5 days after my grandmother's.  She will be 85 on Easter Sunday (April 24) this year and I will be 29 on April 29.  I just found out that every single one of the out-of-town family members will leave before my birthday.  I started throwing a little "pity party" complaining that my birthday is always overshadowed by hers, which is the truth, but still why would I cry over something like that?"

Hi,
My expectation is that I will work to restore this after the election.
Thanks,

Hi,
The search function has been restored.  The new index will not be available until 3am or so.  (current index is from July 30).  Please limit use when the forum is slow.
Enjoy,
Dave
