Why is it set to have a min of three characters in the search field ??? I know why but it's annoying -- Is there anyway to set it like that for just certain words ???

I was trying to look for info on "Windows XP Disk 2" and it wouldn't let me search for it because of "XP and 2" .... I don't know - It was just annoying me so I thought I would say something.

The problem is...
every word over 3 characters is sotred in a huge database (so that searching doesn't take a month of sundays) if we decrease this down to 2 it will take even longer to search and put the server under even more starin.

Hopefully those clever Jelsoft blockos have tohught up sometihng big and clever for vbulletin3, but we will have to wait until we get our hands on it.
