How

When the search function is acting all funny! :frowning:

As any self-respecting woman, I do most of my Forumosa browsing based on the Vanity Search, i.e., I

When you are done with the PA, we could use her or him over here with the rebuilding.

I’ll rebuild the wordmatch table, which is the database that the search function relies on to find things on the website. I cleared this table yesterday - last week, when I emptied the table, it grew to about 70,000 words over the weekend. Before that, it was 17 million words (or maybe that was 1.7 million - I forget, but it was big). We’ll know again soon enough.

Incidentally, I’m unsure how long it will take to rebuild the wordmatch table. The tool I’m using only indexes 100 words at a time and it seems to take most of a minute each set. Since Thu and Fri are the heaviest days on Forumosa, and Sunday and Saturday are the lightest, I’ve put off doing this till then.

I’ll look into removing that “You can’t do another search…” thing. This is something called “Flood control”. Unless someone points me in the right direction sooner, I’ll want to research why it’s here now (there could be a good reason - technical or security) and then how to work around it. So we’re going to live with it for sometime

When I saw Vanity Search, I thought you were referring to the “OWN” link above. In phpBB parlance, they call this an egosearch :slight_smile:

You can still do a Google search.

2.28 million hits for Tash: google.com/search?hl=en&q=ta … gle+Search

The number 1 response:

Good for you. :bravo:

Just a few entries down: the “Gash or Tash?” photo quiz :whistle:
www2.b3ta.com/gash-or-tash/

Below that: “Pluck that Tash” :idunno:
weebls-stuff.com/games/Pluck+that+tash/

And at the bottom of page one, the Wikipedia entry explains that:

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tash_(fiction

There, are you happy? :wink:

To save you some time, I was teasing Croatia in this post:

Tash Tash Tash Tash Tash Tash Tashitytashtash

Yes! 100%! I can tell my tash from my gash. You’re quite safe with me Jaboney.

Thanks, everyone! :slight_smile:

MT, I haven’t checked out those links yet… I’m kind of scared what I might find out, to tell you the truth :astonished:

Goose Egg, thanks for the “egosearch” tip. I don’t know if this is helpful to you at this stage, but I just did another search and I only got today’s results (but I think you already explained this), and they were displayed as links to threads only, whereas before I’d get specific posts as results. This could be difficult when threads are very long. I’m sure you were going to take care of this anyway, but I thought I’d mention just in case.

I’ll let you have my PA when I’m done with him. :slight_smile:
