Search changes

Hi all,

I just rolled out some search changes. The two main things you should notice: search indexing is much quicker now (it updates with new content every 15 minutes) and also now comments (on paid accounts) are indexed.

Thank you for all of your patience with search. We outgrew our old trusty search machine and it's now retired. The new one is much larger, has faster disks, and should hold us in good standing for a while as we grow.

I'll be around all day and watching this post. Please let me know if you see any problems!
