    I've installed a new search system for the site which should make searching significantly faster and more powerful
    The standard Vbulletin search system isn't exactly stellar and has a number of rather annoying limitations so the new Sphinx powered search should be a lot better

    Of course it could also be a total disaster :)

    Hopefully it won't be! :)

    Also you'll see a new section in your profile which shows which parts of the site you're most active in

    After some tweaking yesterday the search system is now updating every 5 minutes with new posts etc.,
    What's more interesting is that it seems to have reduced the load on MySQL quite a bit so the site *should* be a bit faster to load
