We agree and have talked about that.  The search page still needs to be there when we add more fields to narrow your search though.  As always, it seems we don't have the time right now to do this though (or at least not the priorities).  You could get around this by "installing" Channel 9 Search to your web browser search box though so you'll always have search right there.
