    New Site Features: Search improved, Thumbnails, Server Time, Random CC Thread

    Now that we have have moved to a new dedicated (VPS) server we also have the ability to change things at the 'root' level and have greater system resources.
    This will give Rick and myself more scope for site features.

    The first four new features are:

    1. The site search is now a minimum of 3 character words rather than 4, this means more comprehensive searches

    2. The server is now set to AEST rather than US CDT which means we will have less issues around daylight savings time change over

    3. All attachments now have thumbnails, thus the new Attachment manager will be more usable

    4. We now have a Random CC Thread link on the menu's
    - This provides a random members CC thread (posted to in the last 45 days)
    - It shows in both the Forum menu and the AP Extras menu - see screen shot below

    Thanks for all your hard work you guys have been doing for us I like the idea of random CC thread I guess that could be fun you don't know where you go and maybe get us around a little more then some of the same threads running over to give it a try.
