I have updated the quick search facility - the one that's just under the QR code on each page - to bring it better in to line with the new look and feel that was applied to most of the other supporting pages one Christmas and the New Year.

Enter a single word and search, and you'll be given a list of the most recent public threads (sorted by date or match - most recent first). that contain that word.  To make this slightly more helpful, I've added a number on the right which tells you the number of different posts in that thread that matched, and a text snippet to show you the match in its most recent context.

See the bottom of the search page for details of limitations ....  and bear in mind that the main search box is faulty until we upgrade ... gives lots of false hits, has done for years, pretty sure it's because we're running a more recent MySQL server than our forum software has been tested with.

As well as posting messages onto existing threads, and starting new subjects, members can communicate with each other through personal messages if they wish. And once members have made a certain number of posts, they will automatically be admitted to the "frequent posters club", where subjects not-for-public-domain are discussed; anything from the occasional rant to meetups we may be having ...
