Searching is back on for any user with more than 25 posts unless the load gets out of hand, the search function will have to be turned back off. In a week preparation starts for a server upgrade and turn searches on permanently when the upgrade is done.

You can always use Google or another search engine to search the site.
To give you an idea of the load here are some FTE site statistics from last night:
