Yahoo search isn't working properly, via the "Search Ask Metafilter" link. Clicking on a search result link goes directly to http://www.yahoo.com.

Hey Matt, where did the search function go? Now all that is left is a Google search, but that doesn't pick up recent posts. I know you are working on some new search features, but could we have the old one back in the meantime, please?

Ask keeps timing out on me when I do searches for anything except "questions only". I get: "The request has exceeded the allowable time limit Tag: CFQUERY..." In case it's relevant, I'm searching for stars of the lid
. I'm on Safari 2.0.

Words or phrases enclosed in quotation marks (e.g. "too much"
) are ignored by the search app, while the the same words
work fine when used without the quotes. What gives?

It seems that both myself
are wondering about the search timing out. I did a MeFi Google search to see if anyone had recently linked e-sheep, and it looked safe. Little did I know
. As per Qubit, why does the Metafilter specific search engine time out consistently, letting dumbasses like myself double post?

The search facility is basically dead on its feet: I get timeouts 9 times out of 10. Understandable, given the size of the DB, but might it be worth outsourcing (ie, a Googlified site:www.metafilter.com link)?
