Were you trying to use the "strike through" feature? That's what usually causes it.

Well I see the upgrade hasn't stopped the "You can't use search right now, the server has an overload". :-X

It should work fine now. Someone was abusing our sites and causing some issues. They have been taken care of.

Any time "search" gave a "not right now" type of message, I've just used the back button and tried again and it worked. May have just been lucky?
