    When I do a search for "Office XP", both with and without the quotes, at http://www.xp-erience.org/forum/search.php, I get a vbulletin message stating:

    The search term you specified (xp) is under the minimum word length (3) and therefore will not be found. Please make this term longer. If this term contains a wildcard, please make this term more specific.

    XP is two letters. 3 letter minimum per word. Also, make sure you use "and" between search terms.

    Office XP, "Office XP", and "Office and XP", all didn't work.
    I was hoping the quotes " " would work.

    This two letter word, "XP", is making me think of a four letter word, F**K!

    Doesn't work.

    "Office X AND P", without the quotes, only looks for Office.
    I would like to be able to use quotes " " to search for a string of words.
    Maybe this could be added to this site.

    It won't work with 2 letters, blame Microsoft ;)

    I doubt the vbulletin update will fix this either, tho we will get around to installing it anyway - when waddy returns...
