Search system not fully functional?

Recommended Posts

Hi,I don't want to complain. I use your library at AVSIM every day. It is wonderful. Thank you, thank you, thank you.However, sometimes I wonder if there are files I am missing. For instance, there are (at least) five files in the library associated with the string mtrl9. If I search for mtrl9* or mtrl9*.*, it only finds mtrl9_2.zip. It does find more files if I search for mtrl9*.zip. But how many files am I missing? Would somebody please explain to me what is going on here so I can feel less frustrated? What is wrong with the two previous search strings?Are there any plans to someday use another search engine that is a little fuzzier? Why not use google?I do realize this is tons and tons of work, and I know virtually nothing about the technical aspects of implementing a search engine, especially since I imagine you are wanting to output in a particular format. But I do occasionally feel somewhat frustrated.Thank you for listening to my whine,Thomas[a href=http://www.flyingscool.com/FC_StartJava.html] http://www.flyingscool.com/images/Signature.jpg [/a]I like using VC's :-)

Honestly, example*.* should pull up an exceptional amount of files. Below is the list I retrieved with that type of query: Get View Flight Simulator 2004 - Scenery Animated Fireworks, Montr

When I put mtrl9*.* in the basic search page (not the extended search page), the only result I get is mtrl9_2.zip.I don't often use the extended search unless I have a good idea of what I am searching for, or I am searching for a particular author.Thanks for checking this out :)
