i've seen this again and again and again 'round here.

some of you probably know this, but for those who are about to type in "the search function isn't working on this forum for.....", here's a google tip:

keyword site:newtek.com/forums/

go ahead, type it into your google search bar. (replacing keyword with what you're searching for. i'm making this small so that if you didn't get that, you feel small)

there's a TON of other boolean tricks and whatnot available in the goog's search bar, list some of your favorites:

Good workaround, but it shouldn't have to be this way.
