Did you know you can still search head-fi even while search is down? This method isn't good as head-fi's own search, but it should give you the fix you need.

Go to google and type in [your search subject] site:www5.head-fi.org

Enjoy

But IE with google toolbar and the registry hack is much faster...

Opera has it too. However Google toolbar is more sophisticated. Google should release the Firefox version too.

Thanks gort. It doesn't use any of the resources here, and gives us the ability to do searches whenever we want. Cool.
