    It's the same as the normal search, you're just constraining it to posts by that author.

    edit: unless you meant username search, but vBB doesn't partition that off.

    You can, you just have to index every post by hand. In triplicate. Using Microsoft Access 97.

    Over 56k.

    Uphill both ways.

    And the snow has thawed and refrozen into ice.

    And then the Earth exploded.

    binary search (which is almost certainly what they use) on 63k usernames should average ~16 comparisons

    which is effectively null time compared to the rest of the shit the server has to do

    full text search, now that is a job

    edit: wait you probably know this, don't you

    sometimes I forget who's technical
