[[Yes, that's a problem. And even if it's a more useful time where you are, it's still a problem. It should work at all times.]] Thanks for at least recognising that it's problem. All the suggested work arounds are fine…

[[For pretty much everyone, as far as i've heard, there are hours each day when it works fine.]] Those hours are 1am to 9am here and often even less. It's hardly conducive to maintaining any interest.

[[...once the search function is back to full strength...]] Are we any closer to that happening? This does seem to be dragging on for some reason. A progress report might be reassuring.

[[And have a "I got another annoying site-error" badge! {rueful grin}]] I think we've all got chests full of those. Are we still no closer to resolving this issue?

Just attempted to register 3 books by ISBN, title and author using Google and Amazon. No luck with any of them. As noted by others, registering manually is really not a satisfactory alternative due to the additional time…
