Search not available

I would have searched the forum for the answer to this problem, but the problem is that it keeps reporting "search not available right now".

There's an excellent thing called google and you can restrict your searches to particular sites by using "site:www.centos.org" as part of the keywords.

It seems strange that the Search option (the rectangle, above, top right) works for me.

It's definitely not available if you are not logged in but ought to be if you are. There are restrictions on its use based on current server load and the hardware these forums run on is of the "fairly clapped out" variety...
