2. That's the same result I got from putting LAS14 in the DU Google search field.

It's a mix of OPs and replies, some from 2017 on the first result page. I scrolled through 3 or 4 pages and didn't find my 6 week old OP that I'm looking for. I wish there were a way to refine a Google search.

But just now I found what I was looking for. I used DU's advanced search, and put on OPs by LAS14 for last Nov and Dec. I hadn't even tried that, because it always ran out of processing time (at DU's end).

5. Important

If you copy/paste your own name into Advanced Search, make sure there isn't a space after your name in the search field.
