I tried using the search function to find this post: http://forums.parallax.com/showthread.php?p=525379

I searched on "tumble"...got nothing, "tumbleweed"...nothing, "nasa"...nothing, "rover"...nothing.
What's wrong?

Our IT admininstator is actively working on this issue -- some of it involves detailed work with the forum software vendor.

I have found limited success using external search engines by appending forums.parallax.com in quotes to the search term. This mainly works for older posts and doesn't work for you specific example. One thing that does work flawlessly (the best I can tell) is using the "posted by" search function, so if you know anyone that participated in the discussion you can track down the post.

Mike,

I've had better luck using the 'or' function (Any of the keywords and phrases), even if you are specifying only a single search term.
