Tip for using the BBC board

Searching threads more quickly Tip from Paulthebread:
"I'd like to see a mention on your site that adding ?show=200 at the end of any board or thread URL will give 200 posts on one page instead of 20. When I want to look through a long thread I go to the last post, then hit 'First'. I then add a zero to the '20' at the end of the URL in the address bar to get 200 posts on one page. Then I use the CTL F function to find what I'm looking for. "
