Nice feature -- tho here are a few ideas for fine tuning that search link:

1) Target the search link to a "_blank" page. Since it currently loads in the same window as Psycho-Babble, returning to Psycho-Babble causes a reload and erases any "new" tags for threads you haven't seen.

2) Since one of the big complaints from the web weary is bringing forward old threads with a couple dozen replies already attached, could all the archived threads be modified so that intead of getting the "Post a new follow-up" and its associated script, they would get a "Start a new thread" script instead? It could probably be scripted to automatically fill the subject line like the follow-up scripts do.

One other suggestion, not related to the search feature, that could cut the download time is the script that handles the cookie setting for whether the music is turned on or off. If it's read as being off, why not have the script branch so that the java applet and the music file do not load at all?

(Of course, Dr. B., I'm sure you could hop right on these in your copious free time ;^). Maybe, if you want, you can put it to the scripters out here in Babbleland to submit changes to your scripts that would accomplish these changes, *if* you want to make them. Like you said at B-fest NYC ... maybe you could spread the load a bit. =^)
