I'm surprised the guy stayed at it so long, I mean after 26 years of, if what he says is accurate, 60 hour weeks, I feel like you would come to the
conclusion that it did not exist. Honestly, he may have just pulled a log into the lake somehow or dragged one already floating in the water to take
the pic. That or he just finally lost his mind and jumped the at the first chance to say to himself he finally caught it. Either way, I hope the guy
can relax now and maybe enjoy life, if he wasn't already.
Also, as a side note to those defending the search engine here on ATS. I am a web developer myself and it definitely makes me cringe, it is very basic
and therein lies the problem. Yes, for this thread it should have been simple, but once things get a little old it causes things to get hidden under
other results. I personally hate using it most of all, because it would be so much more nice to be able to search in specific forms instead of a
massive giant global search that returns a lot of junk I don't want, I'm not really sure what they did to hook in the google plugin to their
So, to any moderators and whatnot that keep in talk with any developers here on ATS, there is an extremely powerful tool called SOLR which is an
amazing and a pretty easy learning curve. It is open-source, so that means free for ATS, and works like a charm. With faceted searches, weighted
results, and so much more, it would help out a lot. Not just making people happy, but could seriously cut down on the number of repeat threads.
Sorry for the bit on the search engine, just irked me as a web developer. Maybe someone will see this and pass it along to the devs here at ATS, just
a friendly suggestion to help save bandwidth and useless repeat threads. Also, just a tiny styling issue on the search page, but I think if you just
change the line-height for .gsc-control-cse class and make it bigger, should make everything line up better, the page numbers at the bottom in firefox
overlap the line of the last result.
