Description David Saff 2006-05-24 01:32:46 UTC
If you search in wikipedia for the phrase "wikipedia errors", the search churns
for quite some time, and finally returns the error message: "There was a problem
with your search. This is probably temporary; try again in a few moments, or you
can search Wikipedia through an external search service".  This does not happen
with "Britannica errors", or just "wikipedia", but does appear to happen with
Comment 1 Naconkantari 2006-05-24 01:34:09 UTC
Search is temporarily overwhelmed.  Please try again in a few minutes.
Comment 2 David Saff 2006-05-24 02:06:41 UTC
Did so.  This is three times today with the same behavior: "britannica errors"
always quickly produces results.  "wikipedia errors" always produces an error
page, sometimes fairly quickly.  Does it actually WORKFORYOU?
Comment 3 Naconkantari 2006-05-24 02:18:14 UTC
Ok, I misunderstood you.  You are putting the entire term "wikipedia errors"
(including the quotes) in the search box, is that correct?
Comment 4 Brion Vibber 2006-05-24 06:44:04 UTC
Works fine here now.

Note that:
1) Search is sometimes temporarily overloaded
2) Results are cached for several minutes.
