GOOGLE Smokstak and Enginads site SEARCH

Also, we have a built-in search system...

By design, we have limited the search function to require 20 seconds between searches. Our search system does not accomodate two letter words nor most three letter words. Also, users not logged in are required to enter non-machine readable characters from captcha text. This is done to hold server resources under control by rejecting searches by robots.

Do not overlook the Google search that is provided on the drop-down menu when you click search. Google has indexed our boards as well as the calendars and their results are fairly accurate. This is also available at the lower left of each forum page.

With Google, you can also use a minus -sign before a word so that particular word will be ignored in the search results. A wild card* can also be used with a partial word. In this case, it would find all versions of the word card, cards, carding, cardinal, etc., but if the word sign was in the text, that result would not show.

Experiment for yourself and Google has NO time limit between searches.
Results are typically obtained within a quarter of a second.
