It wasn't in December.
My complaint about the new archives is that the default's 10 threads
per page. So I went to Feb and then Jan and expanded them to 200
threads (the max) and searched (the page not the "db") for
Thankfully Feb had 104 threads (or "discussions") and Jan had 125 so
they were all on one page.

and neither of your two dnsmasq Jan threads appear. Also the search
results' page only displays 10 emails and it's unchangeable. (I've
