Long ago I stopped bothering much with the mailing list search function on the freebsd.org page because it was never good enough to find what I wanted, and the list archives were not readable by thread. (finally when they switched to Mailman, you can read archives by thread) Same goes for some of the most common list archive sites - ie geocrawler - no threaded reading, and no search at all! So personally I got in the habit of using groups.google.com when I want to do a search of the FreeBSD lists. Their search facility is superior, I limit the newsgroups to "*freebsd*", and it will return results from the usenet groups which are gatewayed from the mailing lists (a small subset admittedly, but questions@ is one of them), and also the usenet groups which are separate from the mailing lists. -- Philip J.
