On my 15 day free trial, trying to see what UE search can do.

I want to search for posts of any subject that were in alt.binaries.erotica during the last 2 days, and were between 300MB and 600MB, omitting posts from a poster called yencbin. Is there a way to do this?

Well obviously there is only 4 fields in the search options:
Subject, Author, Groups and days/dates
Author could be set to "^yencbin"
Groups could be set to "alt.binaries.erotica" and days/dates to "<2"
The problem is that I think Alex did not allow the subject to be just "*" like for "any" subject or left blank in case of a negation in the Author field.

Thanks for your reply. I was hoping that there might be some advanced search options. I guess there aren't any.

Heh, maybe Alex will comment on this.
Well, perverts allways find a way :mrgreen:
I, myself keep up-to date a virtual adult group containing that a.b.e and it seems most interesting stuff come from the same bot, i.e robo@c*ck.com with UHQ in subject.

as to size you can just use quick filter or create a size or more complicated filter in the filter editor and apply it to the search results view.

collections are not always clearly defined so filter by size doesn't always work, even as could be easy for server to prefilter by size as it is now, it can be done on the client size, the result what you see is the same.

NoNo, I search for UHQ in a.b.e. all the time.

Alex, with the understanding that the selection won't be perfect, how can I select only those sets where the size is between 300MB and 600MB.

Oh that one is easy, and it will work as intended in the search results:
Just put in the Quick filter bar in Size: "300000-600000" or "307200-614400"
You can create an initial filter for the search results so it always appears like that and toggle it when needed.

For that quick/filter to work in others view you need to create a composite filter or else you'll end up with unwanted size collections...
