Google Advanced Group searches

It doesn't appear to work anymore, I used to do an advanced search in
"uk.d-i-y" for say "Viessman boilers". and you would get all the threads
back to god knows when. Unfortunately will not do it now, amI doing
something wrong? or has google changed something?

Hmm. Works for me. 223 results from Advanced Search specifying uk.d-i- y. 218 if I look up "Viessman boilers" (sans quotes) for Search this group when in uk.d-i-y.

I think you may not be searching in Google "Groups".
When you enter Google, at the top of the first page that is opened is a list of the Google sections starting 'Web', 'Images', 'Maps'... etc.
'Groups' is not in this list, so you have to click on the last item 'more' at the end of the list which will give you a pull down menu with 'Groups' as (I think) the fifth item. Click on this and then go to 'Advanced Search' and you will get the correct page to search the newsgroups for "Viessman boilers" or whatever.
