Whenever I try to search for terms, important words are ignored. For example, if I try to search for 'single address space,' the word 'address' is ignored, resulting in crappy results. Am I doing something wrong or not?

Hi,

I agree. Usually, I just use google with search term site:f.osdev.org or search term inurl:f.osdev.org, and it works well.

I've disabled the common word exclusion and re-indexed the forum. Search should be better now.
