    I haven't got the hang of it yet. :(

    Perhaps I am just doing it all wrong, but there doesn't seem to be an advanced search any more, just that one teeny little text search box. And it seems to take longer to type in the range of dates you want, as you now have to type them in dd/mm/yyyy format. AND the results are by default ordered by so-called Relevance which is utterly useless.

    I think I must be getting old: instead of wanting to play and see how it works, I am just fed up that I've got to learn something new again. Grrr.

    (Sorry Ann! Rant over)

    You notice I said "I think"....... I didn't want to commit myself completely until I had played with it a bit more :rolleyes:

    Now I have played I agree with you that there are certain aspects which seem to have disappeared (or to have been changed) which makes some searches a bit laborious - there are ways around some of them, but they are a bit fiddly. Keeps the old brain ticking over though.......:cool:
