The search engine will not accept words of fewer than 4 letters, but that makes it kind of difficult to search the forums for say, "Dig It", "Jim Power" (imagine all hits on "power"), "Tom And Jerry", "World At War" and so on.

Has this been addressed before? Is this something worth looking into?

I recall we once lowered it to 3.
it's a database server variable.
Maybe with the server move it didn't get set as well.
