... for me anyway!

I just wanted to find out a bit more about using the BOINC manager to connect to other computers running BOINC in my LAN. (Don't worry, I will re-ask this question in the relevant forum!) Rather than start a new thread that may have already been answered, I thought I'd search the forums.

If I'm brutally honest, the forum software on most sites I've visited are far more powerful and userfriendly. Therefore it surprises me that a site dealing with cutting edge scientific research doesn't have something at least as good, if not better!

Anyway, I'll get off my high horse and wish everyone a good day!

Regards, David

Hello David,

I agree, it's a disappointment.
AFAIK the search string has to be at least 5 letters long.
Or that was the rule some months ago, I stick to it and therefore do not see any possible change, and nothing is mentioned about it on the page.

It is aready on the wish list, and feel free to join this thread ;)

That's another point for it's userunfriendlyness ;)

OK, there are more urgent issues atm, but a short, explanatory text with tis in it on the search page should be a matter of some minutes.

BTW:
Any other issues besides the forced use of the mouse and minimum 5 letters?
