    Exclamation Can the Search length change from 4 to 3 chars min

    The searching on this site (that so many folks tell us to use) is killing me.

    Example keywords you can't include with searchs

    USB, DUN, WM5, GPS, SMS, ROM, VPN

    I understand why this is done but wondered how much of a hit it would be to allow 3 character words.

    P.S. I have been using google to search the site when I know th ebuilt in engine won't find it.

    if you put a * before or after a word it will act as a wildcard. This wildcard will include blankspaces. So a search for *usb will bring what you want. A search for usb* will find usb and usb2. A search for wm** will bring things like wm3 and wm5, or you could search for *wm5. just play with it. the search is good if you use it right. I don't much like the way google organizes results on forums.
