    @nivek The internal forum search function is incapable of detecting this thread. Screenshot_2021-01-31 Error Alien Expanse.png
    The error message is slightly odd given that the target string consists of three separate words, forming a phrase. One would think this would be sufficient to absolve it from being too short or too common.

    I just tried it again. I entered This and That and it yielded zero results.
    I also tried the same exact search in Chrome and got no results there either.

    The words are too common perhaps for Xenforo's internal search to pick it up, I'll see if there's anything I can adjust in the parameters...I'm sure the new software will correct that...

    @Toroid have you tried this search? Does it work for you?
    Maybe I need to clean my cache or something.

    I'd have to hit the 'yuck' button on that one :)

    I have a vivid memory of my grandmother out back shopping rhubarb out of a patch by an old burning pile with a saty old implement of some kind. She put enough sugar in to loosen your teeth. Never could quite get past that one ..... all her other pies were yummy though

    Northern Lights Livestream

    A recently reactivated livestream from a camera stationed in Canada provides viewers with the chance to catch a glimpse of the famed Northern Lights as they appear in real time. Produced by the nature cam network Explore.org in conjunction with the Polar Bears International organization, the broadcast reportedly emanates from the Churchill Northern Studies Centre in the province of Manitoba. The location is considered a prime spot for observing the breathtaking Aurora borealis since it is situated directly below an area in the atmosphere which is particularly conducive to the phenomenon.

    While daytime viewers will only see the blue sky above the Churchill Northern Studies Centre with the occasional cloud passing through, those watching the webcam in the evening could be treated to quite the show depending on the conditions at the time. The ideal window of opportunity for spotting the Northern Lights in action is, fortunately, during the months of February and March between 10 PM to 4 AM Eastern Time, when night descends over the facility and, more often than not, the sky comes to life with the vivid natural phenomenon.

    Does anyone have trouble remembering some aspects of the pre-Internet world?

    How did we find out what interesting articles were in which magazine, or what new books we might want to read? How did we know who were the leading researchers in various fields, or when and where particular meetings or conventions were going to take place?

    When it came to history, or exotic topics, where did we start to look into such matters? Were local libraries that well stocked? An how about past articles from academic journals - or even the titles of the journals - was university access mandatory?

    How did we know what government agency handled what, as well as their addresses? Likewise, how did we learn the requirements for various licenses, permits, and programs?

    I can easily recall reading maps all the time to get around, but such maps are harder to find now. Also, I think my map reading skills may have deteriorated.

    Regarding TV, the trusty TV Guide, along with the Sunday newspaper were great resources. But of course, there were only a fraction of the number of channels that are around today.

    It's really weird, but in many areas, it almost seems like it would be impossible to operate without the Internet. I vaguely remember spending a lot more time in libraries. It's been around 8 years, though, since I last visited a library. And even then, my only reasons for being there were to get out of the cold, and,...you guessed it, to use the Internet!
