FastSearch: a faster search for MovableType

For reasons I have not been able to wholly ascertain, the search functionality on this blog keeps timing out. Part of it is due to the 15 second timeout that inherent in the Apache web server I am using that I discussed recently. Even so, with 604 entries, 15 seconds should be plenty to locate relevant entries, so I suspect some inefficient coding by the folks at SixApart.

Fortunately, with a little Googling I found this nice hack for MovableType called FastSearch. It makes searching for entries with MovableType very swift again. Enjoy.
