What happened to the search function?

I have search disabled right now until I can update the API that runs the search engine backend I installed last year.  SMF's built-in search is terrible and bogs down the server.

I've added a google site search box to the top of the forum as an interim solution until I get the main search back online.

I'm actually considering not even bothering with the forum search function.  It uses precious resources and most people seem happy with a google site search box anyway.  I don't get the impression that the forum search got a whole lot of use before, and the people who do use it just nag about how much it sucks.
