And it loaded up pretty quick for me.
To see the discussion threads for instance here in this forum:
Go to the Display Options section and set the Show Topics
drop down to "from all dates" and click the "Change" button. This will display all discussion threads in that particular forum.
For search in the MFIF archives, look for the word "Search" on the bar to the left of the FAQ link.
Hope this helps.
I will put up a link up for the MFIF archives and MFI blog in the next couple of days.
