Searching Sucks

When searching for something I find it really awkward having to search for the same keyword in every forum (should be 'topic'). Is there no way to do a Site wide search?

Use google with site:saloon.javaranch.com specified.
We had a site search ages ago, but it was too heavy and now Goggle does it for us so why bother?

You can use Google to do a fairly good search of this forum, just add site:saloon.javaranch.com to the search, like this:

There is such a form at www.javaranch.com, but I agree, that's a good idea.

We had a Google search form at the bottom of every page in the saloon for a short period of time and Paul Wheaton asked me to remove it.
