Default A better forum search tool

While this forum software is a pretty good platform to build an online community with, one of the areas that could be improved is the search performance. Until that happens, here are two search resources that can help you find what you're looking for:

The first is Google Blog Search: http://blogsearch.google.com/blogsearch?hl=en
In my tests, the APC forums placed well in the "pilot" specific searches

The other resource is a custom Google URL search that we have installed at:

The URL search yields some pretty impressive performance in ferreting out info from old threads. Here is a primer on using the Google search tool to help you get the most out of it: http://www.google.com/help/basics.html

Enjoy! On my list of things to do is to integrate the Google search into this forum. It seems to work pretty well, although as always I'd like to hear from you.
