the search is now severley limited. (as i remember earlier one could search into archives..)
i tried looking up one of my old post and only 50 results show up. why is this limitation ? is there some switch/click that i am missing ?

Moving this to the JavaRanch forum...
Long story short, the old search was crashing the server, but we're working on moving to Jive and maybe bringing back a single forum search. Check out This thread for more info.

We don't have any archives. Everything is in the "current" pages. Google doesn't pick up everything. It only has a few thousand threads listed. There have been a few discussions about this already if you check a few threads in this (JavaRanch) forum.
