  • Advanced Search

    Looking at the tips under Advanced Search. Seems like there are very few Boolean operators and terms to use. Like multiple search for words together and AND. Is this right?
    Was searching for a quote by Pete Hickey (Slave Driver) and couldn't get there without a huge number of hits. Also Pete seems to have dropped of the search list for members.

      I haven't played around much with the advanced search to be honest. I suspect those are two examples. Have you tried using other boolean operator searches?

          I tried some on my PC. The ones you get from Google search. And it seems to work better than on my Ipad Mini (which is preferred because on no startup time).
          I was looking for something by pete_hickey and it did help that I put his name in the users field.

          On my mini not quite the same. The software does present itself different. Not sure if that is a sign of a difference.

            Quite possibly. Browser software does play a huge roll.
