Forum search not works?
for example nothing found on FSG

I don't know... I couldn't find the answer.

The indexes might have been damaged during the last day's Slashdot DoS (http://hardware.slashdot.org/story/10/11/12/047243/Hidden-Debug-Mode-Found-In-AMD-Processors).

But if you're lucky, the great board gods might rebuild the indexes as soon as they find it suitable.

I'm rebuilding the Search index right now (started it before the god comment btw )

If that doesn't help (3 letter acronyms...), I'd suggest using the search function of the forum CHM archive (below) - I get 39 'fsg' hits from that.

Or, use google
site:woodmann.com woodmann fsg

Not very surprising, given the divine mind-reading skills of the board gods, of course.

That's funny ... I KNEW you were going to say that!!!

well, i have started search because of attachments. there are many tools in attachments, which are not in CRCETL.
for example i was searching for my dumpers for FSG. also there should be others..

i'd recommend action to explore attachments for tools & submit them in CRCETL.

evaluator, I sent you a PM with a list of all your attachments, sorted by date, if that's of any use to you.

Here's where your fsg unpackerz is, if you haven't found this one already..

ye, i found them already.

how about idea to explore all attachments for tools & submit them in CRCETL?

search yet not works.

local search are not suitable for this, they are meant for a different use.

go --->google.com
type-->site:www.woodmann.com/forum/ "Attached Files"

and you get them. you could add "File Type: zip" or "File Type: rar" to grab the packed ones, or exe etc. if you need more filtering.

Evaluator, we have already performed such an exploration of attached or referenced tools in the TOT forum. The ones that were left out were either too old (posts were only gone through until a certain date back in time) or too lacking in description or "generality".

If you have any suggestions that you think we missed, you are welcome to suggest them though, of course.

search works, but some how not easy.
so if i try quick search from bar above, mostly it will not find.

search word:

then going advanced search. if i tick only FORUMS, it will not find.
tick POSTS will find.

what magic is there??

Mostly the "magic" of crappy vBulletin search engine coding I'd guess... It's quite ridiculous how many problems and weaknesses they have practically always had with their search engine over time. I mean really, how hard can it be?
