Search engine feature added

This site now has a search engine—still in beta, I need to add some features. It searches just weblog posts, but not comments or other pages (yet).

Search engines for your own site can be addictive. I keep finding things I wrote, and thinking, Wow, I wrote that?

It uses MySQL’s standard fulltext index feature. The search engine was thus very easy to write: essentially just a where clause.
