    The "Search Site Content" function seems excruciatingly poor sometimes. For example, these last 24 hours or so, my screen name - plus single words I know I have used on the forums - coughs up zero hits. It's as if it just can't be bothered to help me.

    Perhaps you've only been in the private forums?

    I was looking for stuff in the Spirituality Forum.

    It may be borrowing external tools like Google, and Google's a web-crawl based engine, which means you need to give it a few days to crawl new things.

    I don't know why these robot gadgets can't work at lightning speeds.

    Because super-conductors haven't yet been invented.

    What you want to request is for RHP to search its database rather than trying to leverage "Google Custom Search". From what I gather GCS only searches web pages that Google has indexed. As such, it'll always be hit-and-miss as to whether or not you'll be able to find what your searching for no matter how long you wait. Seems like a very high percentage of the time, I can't find what I'm looking for regardless of how long ago it was posted.

    No, that's not it!
    It just wants to forget you exist!

    Well, there's nothing there to find anyway!
