    I think we need a name change to this statement;
    • Search child forums as well
    Its listed in the search forum area...Even if it has a legitimate meaning, it just doesn't look good or sound right. It just sends up red flags. Just my .02

    It's just a computer term, and makes perfect sense in this context

    Just my 0000 0000 0000 0010 cents ;-)

    It means search the "children" of a certain section of the forum. So all the "sub sections" if you will. Makes perfect sense.

    When I first got interested in radio / electronics, in Jr High I was explaining to a friend about some hook up, and was talking about a "male" or "female" connector. My mother, who nothing of this stuff, chastised me about it. I had to show her in my Allied radio catalogue "that is how it's done."

    N' yeh, 1963 was just about "when"----I would have been 15
