• After more than 30 years running websites and forums I am retiring.

    I have made many friends through the years. I will cherish my time getting to know you. I wish you all the best. This was not an easy decision to make. The cost to keep the communities running has gotten to the point where it's just too expensive. Security certificates, hosting cost, software renewals and everything else has increased threefold. While costs are up ad revenue is down. It's no longer viable to keep things running.

    All sites will be turned off on Thursday 30 November 2023. If you are interested in acquiring any of the websites I own you can Email Schwarz Network.

Daft search restrictions

I did a search for ICustomTypeDescriptor only to be told that no results were found and that (presumably this was the reason) ICustomTypeDescriptor had been excluded from the search because it was either too short, too long or too common. Presumably it was too long. Isn't it a bit silly that there's an exclusion for words which are too long?

Unlucky you, your word is 21 chars long and the max is currently set to 20! I sent a note to iNet since increasing the maximum length will make their database/index grow larger. I don't think they'll have a problem with increasing it, but who knows.

For now, you can also use google to do most of your searches. Try this:
ICustomTypeDescriptor site:xtremedotnettalk.com

Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that anyone has posted on that word yet - or google is limiting it's database, too? Who knows :)
