I understand and appreciate what Karl has said but as a very heavy user of the forum's search features, I am for anything that makes that task easier. In that vein, I, too, have found the five second delay annoying. And I consider myself to be a very patient person. If Craig is also finding the delay annoying, that can only mean that he is doing a lot of searches. I have also noticed recently that Craig has been going beyond the call of duty by helping other members with citations to posts and threads that address their concerns. Norma used to do the same thing, and that was long before she became a Moderator. I don't quite know how she does it, but she seems to remember everything she has ever done on this forum and to be able to cite all of the relevant posts and threads. She has been burning up the search function.
I'd also like to thank Paul (parallei) for his help along the same lines. Members like Paul make this forum a better place.
