    I tried free map for a search but it didn't like it (I then switched to free maps but turned up nothing relevant). Is that 4-letter minimum totally necessary?

    Unfortunately, yes. Dropping it to three letters (useful for ASP, JSP, PHP, CGI, etc., obviously) would make the search index huge and my host might not appreciate it. In the meantime, you should be able to use wildcards (CGI*, etc.).

    I think vB's use of search indexes is pretty inefficient. I've looked at it before, and didn't like the approach at all. I'd like to take a look at it in more detail some time and make some suggestions for improvement.
