groups.yahoo.com is broken. It sometimes works and sometimes doesn't. Yahoo seems to recognize the problem and I've asked Yahoo to fix it.
If you want to try the Yahoo advanced search function use this link
But if that does not work (it often won't), you can go to Google and enter this in the search box:
site:yahoo.com inurl:johnmuirtrail what-I'm looking-for
I.e., if you enter
site:yahoo.com inurl:johnmuirtrail bearvault
and you get 35 "hits" of our postings on the bearvault
You can also use this to search for a particular author
site:yahoo.com inurl:johnmuirtrail "roleigh Martin"
gets 198 hits
Or a particular author on a particular topic
site:yahoo.com inurl:johnmuirtrail "roleigh Martin" bearvault
gets 8 hits
It's not perfect - sometimes you get a "hit" where one message of a Yahoo-generated message group will be something from Roleigh and another message on the same group will be by someone else about the bearvault.
I use this sometimes when I can remember writing about something and want to retrieve it
