First version was launched back in November 2009. For a year it was operating on Pentium II 367,50 MHz with 256 DIMM RAM handling about 2 million images. It was largely abandoned after reaching 5 million posts in May 2011 (those were duplicate accross indexed boorus, not separate images with list of sources as now). During this period it ran on the single server in my bathroom (mind you, it was upgraded to Pentium-D 3 GHz with 1 GiB RAM in mid-2010).
In March 2015 I suddenly decided to revamp the entire thing – something I have been planning for years and have almost started a few times. This attempt turned to be a success and now you see what has become of it. IbSearch has moved to its own domain – or rather two (.ch and .xxx).
Unlike previous two versions, IbSearch 3 runs on whole lot of servers including several dedicated robots that automatically crawl various boorus adding, updating, deleting and linking together images that are both old and just uploaded. Having such an unattended crawler was my dream from day one. Dreams come true, you see.
Oh, and since this swarm of servers can no more fit in my bathroom (although I could use their heat in the winter) they live in a neightboor data center.
Because IbSearch is my hobby project I would very much like to hear what you have to say – cheers, feedback, suggestions, bug reports. Say
Hi!, the form is right

Suggestion (0): Save current position in search
> fix excluding of a ratting (for example: -rating:e) because it causes empty search results, even if there should be images listed out
Excluding currently doesn't work as expected in some cases because it works by filtering existing results and if you don't have any terms other than exclusion filters an empty set.

Good stuff. Would be nice to see external downloader support.
Wish I knew about this site sooner. Would've saved me a few headaches when I was trying to reverse-search with md5 filenames. [Freakin' other sites with those horrible filename systems.]
Thanks for your search engine, good job.
