Virus note: All files are scanned once-a-day by for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them.


1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

How does the search feature work on the files page as it looks like it's searching for text that is in the description field but would like to be able to change it so it searches for text in the name or filepath?
