Updated AO Search Engine

Just so that you know, I have tested this to death so I am not expecting any strange happenings.

This change simply removes words that are shorter or longer than the "minimum/maximum word length" which in turn removes the annoying "The search term you specified (*) is under the minimum word length (*)...." message.

Refer to the highlighted text in the screenshot below for more of a clue. The search string I used to demo this was "there is an alfa on my driveway"
