Can you find out a page in the zetafunc thread which contains a given string?

Then why are you looking for it? Why were you happy when it was not found?

The search is missing it, perhaps because he is a guest.

Hi,

I don't know if this is right, but I think the search engine may have a list of trivial/small/common words that it ignores. I've looked for such words in past searches, with no luck.

It looks for whole words only, too.
