    Problems with search...

    I don't know if it's just me and my computer, but I keep having trouble with the search. Whenever I do a search I get taken to a blank white page that has this on it.

    Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 67108864 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 1048576 bytes) in /home/swiftblade/domains/defensivecarry.com/public_html/vbulletin/search.php on line 1155
    I tried to search to see if this was posted before....... lets say that didn't go the way I planned. It happens no matter if I use simple search or "go advanced". This happens probably 90-95% of the time I search. I use Firefox, and my browser history and cache are wiped every time I close FF. I don't know if it's something on the DC end or just my stooped computer (I hate linux)

    I can almost always get it to search with only one term, but if there is a space it hardly ever works. Are you not supposed to use spaces ? They used to work for me...

    Search works fine for me right now. I'm running Safari on a Macbook.

    I'm not having any issues with multiple word, spaced searches either.

    What is a word or phrase you're searching for and are you targeting specific sub-forums?

    I was searching for "Carry Pistol" because in about 2 months I'll be applying for my CCW, and wanted to see what people carried and if people carried small, like a 22LR. It was just a general search of everything. I'll live digging through the forums.

    Ok. I kinda figured it was my POJ computer. It hates me.

    Think a laptop is about COM sized ??? I have been meaning to get to the range...

    Edit: And now the search seems to be working fine for me, for the first time in like 2 weeks... soon as I replace this computer I'm going all "Office Space" on it.

    JD, thanks for that link. I saw that after i posted here and gave up on search. I'm trying to find a cheap carry gun because money is tight. Given the economy I figured someone else must have started that thread, looks like digging and trying to search as much as possible.

    thanks for all the help everyone. Feel free to delete this or whatever the higher powers feel appropriate.
