    Forum searches hang constantly

    Howdie.

    I have noticed that for about a couple of weeks now, anytime I try a search, the search either never completes (just hangs) or ends up with a blank page. This happens in both Firefox and IE.
    Is there anything I am doing wrong on my end?

    Thanks!

    Can you give an example of what you are searching for? I believe if you use too many search terms at once, you can cause the system to take forever.

    Hey Brad, thanks for your reply.

    It may be a slammed server or something. My search strings were pretty small, like, "Number of files on hard drive", "Get command prompt results into vb6", "Count files on drive".

    The search queries took between 5 and 8 seconds to display on my screen from the time I pressed enter in Chrome.I tried all three.

    It may have been a coincidence that when I would search for something over the past two weeks that the servers were hung up or had a lot of traffic.
