PS: It's nice to have full-text search of my LiveJournal, but it could be improved in so many ways...
It's too bad I work on Real Search now. It means I probably shouldn't add features, as I don't know which sorts of things that I've learned about are textbook-standard information retrieval and which are fancy.
