Any chance of an even-more-Advanced Search?

    I often find myself submitting multiple searches using variants of a keyword, so I'm thinking a Really-Advanced-Search would be cool!

    Would allow things like:

    * AND, OR within keyword searches
    * Wildcards (*, !) within keywords
    * exact phrase searching within quotes (don't recall off-hand if TB searches already do this...)

    ...actually, those top 2 features alone would be pretty handy. Hopefully the Forums software supports this and it wouldn't be too much of a drag on performance! And even if it did consume additional resource for individual searchs, think about the reduction in overall search attempts... so there would be a smaller quantity of relatively more resource-intensive searches performed... make sense?

    And ... of course, if these features are already available and I'm just missin' the boat on how to use 'em... please lemme know!

    Great suggestion. The AND, OR functionality would be extremely helpful at the very least.
