I searched for the words "time" and "format" from the "search" box (and also in Advanced Search) and got a "Cannot find server" page for the URL:

This has happened reasonably often. Is there a problem with your server?

I'm experiencing the same thing for searches which include the word "server".

This is happening because the server gives up on a search if it's taking too long (this is to avoid reducing performance too much for other users). It's a pain, but the likleyhood is that if you get this error you'd get too many results to be useful anyway. Use more specific terms.

Use Google. In addition to getting better hits, you can use the server cache. See http://forums.slimdevices.com/showthread.php?t=27131 for how to use Google and searching of these forums.
