I did a find messages about last night using my username and came up with 10 hits. Most of those did have my username in the title. I also tried searching on 12 x 12 and came up with 291. I think it does show everything, but it shows it by "discussion thread." So if some started a main post and there were a hundred posts under that post that mentioned 12 x 12, you would just see the main post in the search results. You can read through the posts under that. It also appears to me that the archive right now just goes back to the beginning of the year.
I don't know. It's wierd....umm, I mean different.
