BF2S forums are now running Sphinx -- a super kick ass, dedicated searching system. And it's blazing fast -- no more "please wait while we forward you to the results" screens. Just results, now.
Here's a fun search to get you started off on the things this can do better:

Find replies quoting chuyskywalker, newest first
Also, Sphinx supports some intensely advanced querying options which you can use to get very detailed results.
Finally, there is no pagination -- this is intended. Most people who don't find what they want on page 1, usually just change their search terms -- this is now setup to work in the flow very nicely by keeping the search form on the results page.
Please leave feedback on how it's working (or not). Thanks!
