I'm glad you are getting faster results, but I doubt it has to do with Netscape. The problem with the NAFF site search engine is that it physically searches nearly every file, message, etc, on the NAFF site and depends on the HiWaay server to do this. Since there are well over 10,000 files and messages to search through, it takes a while anyway, but the server may also be under heavy load at certain times. This is the main reason for the slow search.

I have looked at some search scripts which allow indexing the site, but most of them require database resources which I don't think I have access to with the type of account I have with HiWaay. They would make the searches lightning fast compared to the present method though.

Good luck and good fishin'

Kerry
