No worries. We learned something about the new server, which is useful to know.

Let us know if any 3-letter word searches do seem to slow things down (they shouldn't). We will also look to clear the blocked words list, so words like "Taiwanese" may be used -- although the idea behind the blocked words is that they are too frequently mentioned to be useful results in the first place.

They may be useful as qualifiers however. Take my example above. If I'm looking for information on "Taiwanese tones," "tones" is far less useful as I'll be swamped with information on Mandarin tones.
