Slotblog's "Search" feature is a useful, yet very underused tool for finding answers to many common questions.

Type in a word, example, "compressors", click the square green button, and it will find a wealth of historical Slotblog discussions on the subject.


The trick is to scroll down past the ads until you see genuine Slotblog threads.

I don't mean to dissuade people from asking questions. Just showing you a tool that really works well. Try it, I use it all the time :good:

You once had to search using a word with more than three letters. That must have been fixed on a software upgrade, a 3-letter word now works.

And the search only goes back so far, like 5 years or so. The board software is the limiting factor here. So if search can't find it, and you know it's there, look for it on your own (if that's not too hard). You'll find it.
