Why not just stick a nice search box on the default interface here. I know that you can get to the site search page, but it is not all that obvious, especially when in need of a quick answer.
It might save you guys an awful lot of time.
Whoops.. posted this in google forum...okay to stay on topic, maybe you could get google to kick in one of those devices they are selling for search. It would certainly get demo'd to the right crowd.
I am not a fan of the on-the-page search box. The places I've seen them used, they get abused and most often lead to frustration by users. Some of the highest levels of site abandonment that I've experiences, have been at the hands of search boxes.
The best thing we can do for dupe topics, is use good titles so that people can spot the story from that forums index page.
