Forum search is having issues...

by John.Wilkinson / March 27, 2007 5:07 AM PDT

Some searches are pulling up incorrect results or, worse yet, no results at all. Take this search for example. Most work correctly, but there are a few, such as Ebay, which we apparently have no love for regardless of the number of searches performed.


P.S. Any chance of fixing the problem with 'Latest Replies' in the member profiles, which has been broken since November? It's also based on the forum search feature, so while they're addressing the one...

And if I try it by DATE, nonsense results.

Did Microsoft write the search code?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
