  • Call 811

    Here's something that might help you to remember to call 811 before you dig.

    Blondie "Call Me" parody - "Call 811" - YouTube

    I know there is a thread on call before you dig, but this POS search engine finds everything but what you are looking for.

    I have one request...don't "fix" anything else on the forum until you've tested it and know it works as advertised. Before the last upgrade of vB the search feature worked perfectly and was very useful. Now it is totally worthless and I am sure because of this many people do not search out old threads to add to them but start new ones which resulted in disjointed discussions and makes it more difficult to find what you are looking for not to mention that it probably also contributes to swelling of the database that all this resides in thereby slowing it down.
    "When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
    John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)

    I agree, search sucks. I have to use google to find what I am looking for here

    Enter into google
    Ridgid batteries (or whatever else you are not finding)

    I can't even find 1/2 of my posts.
    We don't have preventative maintenance around here, we have CRISIS MANAGEMENT!

      Forum upgrades drove away a lot of traffic too. Used to be that the Drain Cleaning section alone had numerous posts per day, now it's a rare occurence. That's what I was here for and that's why I have mostly moved on to greener pastures.
