Late update: Five new CCF files from Brian Wells, Chuck Boerner, Gary Baron, Kyle Swope and Matthew Clayton.

Forum changes: I've been very busy lately working on the forum software. First, it appears that every now and then someone is affected with a twitchy index finger that results in duplicate posts on the message forums. In one case last week a single message was posted 73 times in a matter of minutes. So, in order to prevent this from happening again I've added new code to each forum that can prevent duplicate posts - your message will only appear once. But please, don't test it! :-)

Next, I've completely overhauled the search engine. As the server load has increased, the speed of the search program -- which needs to read thousands of files -- has diminished. During peak loads the program simply times out, especially when searching "all" forums. Not very handy. In order to improve the situation I've spent the entire weekend rewriting code, so that it now breaks down search requests into small bite-sized chunks. In addition, it now caches results for greater speed when flipping between pages or in the case of an accidental screen "refresh". It's still in an early early beta stage so I'd appreciate hearing of *any* problems.
