This may not matter if Jive is implemented, but...
what about putting a front end on the Google search that is much like the UI that used to be used for UBB?
It could be a simple form that would do some formatting for the Google search user. For example, the form could have fields for Forum, Topic and Member Number that would get formatted into query strings like...
""Developer Certification" locking +862"
...that would then be handed over to Google to do the actual search.
I understand that UBB had to go away. It was obviously putting a strain on the host. The ability to fine tune searches with UBB is sorely missed though.

We were talking about it in the Moderator's Only forum, but I think it got sidetracked in the effort to test and move to Jive.
