How does somebody search for these machines when search function doesn't show results for them? Just today there's a posting in machines with a couple 10-50 machines in it, and using the search tool to find posts containing "10-50" (without the quotes), returns no posts.

Any thoughts would be helpful.

Google will let you search on specific sites using this syntax: site:<URL> <text>, e.g.,

site:forum.talkingmachine.info 10-50

Type/cut/paste that into Google's search box and you'll get what you're looking for.

The TMF itself ignores words that are only 2 or 3(?) characters. It sees "10-50" as a 10, a separator and a 50. Both "10" and "50" are ignored, therefore, no results.

Thanks! the google search does the trick, I had been playing around with that earlier today and must have gotten the url wrong, because it wasn't returning results
