Is there a help for searching this site? If so, I've not located it.

I entered '510' and 'EB' in the search terms without quotes and separated by a space and get back nothing. Why?

Thanks.

IT really sucks.
I have the google search on the side of the forum - Its better, but only searches the archive. So try that.

Google only archives? Good grief. I also googled the forum software and found a discussion apparently among programmers on this subject. My brief read is consistent with the 'sucks' assessment.

OK, tell me how to search for threads and/or subjects on the E-510? How to use boolean logic to combine terms? That will do what I want hopefully? Is this possible? If not, what does the search do, or rather what arguments is it looking for to do whatever it does?

Thanks.

It doesn't like numbers for some reason. But really the archive search is good. I was at one point looking at some options, but really the google search is about as good as it get's I am afraid.

OK, thanks.

I think I have a strategy that more or less works. Just not as elegant as I was hoping for.
