Searching for the crocodile man

I'm trying to find the member who is developing the database that monitors crocodiles.  Anyone who has a link to one of his threads, please post it.  Search is producing nothing.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

What are a few keywords that were in the thread?  What was it in regards to (subject)?    As I mentioned in the PM, there is no member that starts with 'croc'.

Don't know. Try searching for alligators
PatHartmanAuthor Commented:
We talked about alligators but he only tracks croc's.  Things he was tracking are
Biology, Encounter, Cattle Color, Cattle shape,

How many threads could possibly contain the word crocodile?

I think his name is Sharkman or something like that
Big Business Goals? Which KPIs Will Help You

The most successful MSPs rely on metrics – known as key performance indicators (KPIs) – for making informed decisions that help their businesses thrive, rather than just survive. This eBook provides an overview of the most important KPIs used by top MSPs.

Fastest way I've found to try and find a member is to start a new PM and use the recipients line to do a search:

These are all the member names containing "shark".

As far as the question, "crocodile" turns up nothing but this question:

and none of your keywords bear any fruit.  

The other method to find it since you know the time frame would be to look at your profile, click on "contributions", and then search backwards until you find it.   I looked, but nothing jumped out at me.

It is possible that the question was deleted and is no longer indexed.

If you still can't find this easily, then I'll get some folks at EE involved so we can figure out why not.

I'm pretty sure it was Sharkman but that may not have been his real name.and its not in the list either.  I searched for him.

Is there any way to get a list of all questions for a topic that were opened during a time period?  I checked both open and closed but I can't find the question in either.

If you can get the PTB to search themselves, they might find it by the attachment which is named FormsTestBeta.accdeb.  It's very strange that none of the search terms are bringing up anything.  The indexing must be selective.

The most recent question was about a week ago but the others are older.  It is possible that the newest one got deleted if no one responded but the older ones should still be available.

Every time I search for crocodile, the search wants to correct my spelling.  Is that what is happening.  Is it not actually looking for crocodile but for what it thinks I want instead?

Thanks I found him.  Either I am getting senile (a real possibility) or the thread was on a different forum.  I also searched there BTW with no success either.  Sorry for causing a problem.  I never found last weeks thread but he happened to post again and I caught it today.
was it sharkman?

I didn't ask him what his id is here so I don't know.
