Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

go advanced and use clear tertms. Single word searches yield infinite results, and limit the topical search to thread titles instead of text and title..

I use google search like this. Put exact phrases in quotes. ( I locate my old postings by adding "rm -rf" to the search.)

for instance:
site:bikeforums.net "fsa omega" bar "rm -rf"

But I never thought about restricting it to one forum. This does work!
site:http://www.bikeforums.net/fifty-plus-50/ fizik

This will probably pick up references to your username, not just your posts. But you can see context of each posting.
