Search function improved

2008/06/17 | Posted under: Tech stuff

Maybe you’ve noticed but the search function from time to time took a looong looong time to return any results … Up to a whole minute, which is – naturally – awful for you as the user. Well, we do know the cause of this and at the moment can’t do anything about it (it [...]
