View Full Version : Quick find past thread contributions needed

I found myself looking for a thread I'd contributed to and it's very difficult to search for, especially if it was a long time back.

I assume you've already tried this, but if you can't remember the exact phrase of the post topic, do a search with your user name.
True, it will give you all 400 some odd posts you have been involved with, but I've done it before and it doesn't take too long to go through them quickly and often when you see the heading of the thread you're looking for, you may go...Ha! I'll bet that's it!
Especially if you can narrow it down a bit time wise....

Or, give us a hint and with out combined efforts I'll bet we'd come up with it in, Oh say, as long as it takes to change the hydraulic lines on a 1830 Case skidder...:p

Even your own name with just one keyword would narrow things down a lot. ;)
I think the new search capabilities are one of the biggest improvements since the site was upgraded. Cheers ixl :cool:

Hey! No fair! Where's the :eek: and the :o ?
HeHe-Just kidding...Glad you found it! As Paul mentioned, it really is a great feature of the forum, and one I use all the time.
If you tried to find it without the search option, I imagine we could change the hydraulic lines on every 1830 Case skidder ever built faster. (Gee- Did they build more than one? Did such a thing even exist that year? Hey! Wait just one minute! They didn't have hydraulic lines in 1830..Did they??? I suppose a bulldozer would have come in real handy 30 years later during the civil war. Guess I'll have to do a search) :confused: :o
Good luck Sylvander! (And good bliss you too) :D
(Edit) Wow! just found a reference to:
...studies led to the publication of History of Hydraulics (by Simon Ince and Hunter Rouse) and Hydraulics in the United States, 1776-1976 (by Hunter Rouse), :D
