Hi,

New X2 owner here. Thanks to the mods and others that keep it running. I looking for suggestions to improve my search capability. I notice that "X2" is to short a word and is ignored in forum searches. I understand the practice. Can you suggest a search that would allow me to search for "X2 ballast"? If not, no big deal.

Thanks again,

Brent

Trying the word 'ballast' narrows it down some to at least 500 threads containing the word here, http://www.tmcowners.com/teamtalk/search.php?searchid=1049677

The search function on this site is horrible at best. I use google. Type "site:tmcowners.com x2 ballast" into the search box and you should have plenty of hits!

Welcome and good luck!

Thanks Sodar, I'll have to get used to using that shortcut more often, I just tried it and it's great. I had seen something mentioned about that before but you explained it perfect and made it simple for dumb folks like me!
