Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Sounds like someone wants to get in the good graces of the mods. Cough.

Of course it works well. I don't know why more people don't use it. Lots of people complain about the search feature, but I haven't had any trouble with it (advanced search, I've never tried other forms of searching) for a couple years now.

The only thing that can be just a tiny bit troublesome is that certain words are deemed too common to search on. But most of the time you can think of another word to use instead.
