In Reply to: Update on archive 'search' facility posted by Quentin on July 30, 2001 at 19:08:08:

A new archive search engine is being completely written from scratch.
The old one was running out of memory after searching only items up
through 2000, so we are going with a custom solution that should be
better. We hope to have it ready in a few weeks, if not sooner.

The best way to try to find a message that you know was posted in
a certain date range is to check the weekly archive pages around that
time. There is one index file per week in the archives, and they
should help you find the posts of interest for now.
