Search deamon?

WTF is the "search deamon," and why can't I access it?

I get this message when I try to search: "Unable to access the search deamon."

Don't use the search field on the right, imo it sucks. Use the search tab in the upper left next to home and help. Much better way to search.

Oops, that search feature is now down too. It was up just a couple hours ago.

Re: Search deamon?

deamon:

"In Unix and other computer multitasking operating systems, a daemon (pronounced /ˈdiːmən/ or /ˈdeɪmən/)[1] is a computer program that runs in the background, rather than under the direct control of a user; they are usually initiated as background processes. Typically daemons have names that end with the letter "d": for example, syslogd, the daemon that handles the system log, or sshd, which handles incoming SSH connections."

or

"Daemon Tools (styled DAEMON Tools by its creators) is a disk image emulator and optical disc authoring program for Microsoft Windows. Daemon Tools was originally a furtherance in the development of another program, Generic SafeDisc emulator, and incorporated all of its features. The program is able to defeat most copy protection schemes such as SafeDisc and SecuROM."

Re: Search deamon?

Well, it's the same thing if you click on the magnifying glass on the top right next to the search.

Re: Search deamon?

i never clicked on that either, hehe. i just clicked and typed into the "search box". why would one search perform so much worse than the other?

that might explain why so many new people say "i searched but didnt find anything" and start repeated posts...

Re: Search deamon?

Well, regardless of which is better, the point is neither one is working at the moment

Re: Search deamon?

Yeah, the magnifying glass and search tab are the same. Most seem to just use the search field on the right. Using the tab or magnifying glass allows users to refine their search and select "in subject field" which will yield the best results.

Re: Search deamon?

We use a specially modified search engine. Unfortunately, we've never quite set it up 100% right - it doesn't load when we reboot the server, so sometimes we forget to start it. If that ever happens just bug MZ3sZoomZoom or I.
